Abstract

We demonstrate a temperature sensor based on surface plasmon resonances supported by photonic crystal fibers (PCFs). Within the PCF, to enhance the sensitivity of the sensor, the air holes of the second layer are filled with a large thermo-optic coefficient liquid and some of those air holes are selectively coated with metal. Temperature variations will induce changes of coupling efficiencies between the fundamental core mode and the plasmonic mode, thus leading to different loss spectra that will be recorded. In this paper, variations of the dielectric constants of all components, including the metal, the filled liquid, and the fused silica, are considered. We conduct numerical calculations to analyze the mode profile and evaluate the power loss, demonstrating a temperature sensitivity as high as 720pm/°C.
