Paper Abstract

We successfully fabricate and demonstrate a type of in-line M-Z interferometer by using single mode fiber and suspended dual-core hollow fiber. We fuse one section of dual-core hollow fiber (about 5-10cm length used as interferometer arms) with two part of single mode fiber by arc discharging on their cross sections. After this new M-Z interferometer’s fabrication and related experiments, we improved it by absorbing drops of alcohol in its dual-core hollow body which can do much of contributions to its sensitivity. With bunches of temperature experiments conducted, we find this new interferometer has a good temperature sensitivity highly as 1.751nm/°C (from 20 to 100 °C) and interferometer with alcohol inside has a better temperature sensitivity highly as 3.015nm/ °C (from 20 to 60 °C) respectively.
