Paper Abstract

In this paper, a dual-parameter measurement scheme based on an etched thin core fiber modal interferometer (TCMI) cascaded with a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is proposed and experimentally demonstrated for simultaneous measurement of magnetic field and temperature. The magnetic fluid cladding surrounding the TCFMI was used as a magnetic field-to-refractive index transducer. To depress the temperature influence on the performance of such sensors, an FBG was inscribed in the leading SMF of the TCFMI. Experimental results show that, the reflection of the FBG has a magnetic field intensity and temperature sensitivities of -0.017 dB/Oe and 0.133 dB/℃, respectively, while the Bragg wavelength of the FBG only has a temperature sensitivity of 13.23 pm/℃. By monitoring the reflection wavelength and intensity of the Bragg mode, the intensity of the magnetic field and the temperature variance can be measured, which enables magnetic field sensing under strict temperature environments. Meanwhile the reflective sensing probe is more compact and practical for applications in hard-to-reach conditions.
