Abstract

We present a surface-mountable miniature Fabry–Perot (FP) pressure sensor that utilizes the total internal reflection at a 45 ° angled fiber end face to steer the optical axis by 90 ° . By using the fiber as a waveguide, as well as a natural mask in photolithography, an FP cavity is constructed on the sidewall of the fiber. A polymer–metal composite diaphragm is employed as the pressure transducer. The sensor exhibits a good linearity over the pressure range of 1.9 14.2 psi , with a sensitivity of 0.009 μm / psi and a hysteresis of 2.7%. This sensor is expected to impact many fronts that require reliable static pressure measurements of fluids.
