Paper Abstract

We demonstrated temperature sensing of a side-polished fiber with polymer nanoporous film cladding, which was constructed by dehydrating dichromate gelatin film on the polished surface. Due to intermodal interference of core mode and cladding mode, two main transmission valleys were observed at 1219.2 and 1373.2 nm. The modulation amplitudes are ∼8 and 12 dB, respectively. These two transmission valleys show significant sensitivity to the temperature. At the wavelength of 1373.2 nm, the position of transmission valley blueshifted 114 nm while the temperature changes from 30°C to 90°C, and the sensitivity of temperature was up to 1.92  nm/°C. The linear correlation coefficient was 98.67%. The temperature sensing characteristics of nanoporous cladding fiber was successfully demonstrated, and it shows a high potential in photonics applications.
