Abstract

A novel fiber sensor capable of simultaneously measuring force and temperature is proposed and investigated. A section of high-index-fluid-filled photonic bandgap fiber (HIFF-PBGF) is inserted in a fiber loop to act as the sensing head. Photonic bandgap effect of the HIFF-PBGF as well as Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) introduced by controlling the splicing between the HIFF-PBGF and single mode fiber is used for achieving force and temperature discrimination. Taking advantage of the bandgap being high sensitivity to the temperature, a high temperature sensitivity of more than −1.94 dB/°C is achieved, which is the highest based on the intensity measurement, to our best knowledge. Meanwhile, a force sensitivity of 3.25 nm/N (~3.9 pm/με) is obtained, which could be enhanced by controlling the FPI shape. The device also has the strong points of easy fabrication, compact structure and high interference fringe contrast.
