Paper Abstract

In this paper, several configurations of optical fiber refractive index sensors based on a hetero-core structure are presented. These sensors are made by splicing short lengths of several specialty fibers with different core and cladding diameters between two standard single-mode fibers. In addition, two fiber bragg gratings are inscribed in single-mode fiber at both sides of the specialty fibers in order to create an in-fiber Fabry-Perot interferometer and the behavior of the transmission spectra is analyzed. The sensitivities and spectral behavior of the sensors are obtained by immersion in solutions of different refractive index.
