Paper Abstract

A computer controlled optical thermometer has been built to demonstrate a self-calibrating optical sensor. The self-calibrating thermometer records the temperature with a fiber-optic polarimetric temperature sensor. The wavelength sensitivity of the polarimetric sensor is used to facilitate the recalibration. The system contains an optical source which can be tuned over approximately a 9 nm wavelength range, and a monochromator to measure any shifts in the wavelength of the laser. The monochromator is calibrated with the spectrum of a neon discharge lamp.
