Paper Abstract

The authors focused on the problem of production and measurement parameters of optical couplers created from polymer polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) for fiber-optic sensors. For the production of optical couplers, clear two-component elastomers Sylgard 184 and RTV 615 (manufacturer Dow Corning) was used. These elastomers offer a suitable combination of mechanical and optical properties. For the experiments, a total of 50 optical couplers were created. The effect of thermal aging on their transfer properties was analyzed. The thermal load was performed in a temperature box at 100 and 200 ° C under constant conditions for 48 hours. Measurements were made for a wavelength of 1550 nm and 1310 nm.
