Abstract

We report on the fabrication of a monolithic fiber Fabry–Perot interferometer whose cavity is a microscopic air bubble. The latter is formed when splicing together a conventional single-mode fiber and an index-guiding photonic crystal fiber with the standard arc-discharge technique. Spherical microcavities with diameters ranging from 20 to 58 μ m were fabricated with such a technique. The interferometers exhibited low thermal sensitivity (less than 1.0 pm ° C ), high mechanical strength, broad operation wavelength range, and fringe contrast in the 8 12 dB range. The applications of the interferometers for strain sensing (up to 5000 μ ϵ ) is demonstrated.
