Paper Abstract

The fiber optic sensor system, that consists of 6 - 8 fiber sensor heads and can measure the salt-content in the water of near-coastal region of 1 Km2, is presented. The fiber optic sensor head was made by polishing the end of a double fiber in the form of a prism, with reflecting coating on one side, and had a dimension of 250 - 300 microns. The fiber optic sensor with lead-in power of 3 - 15 mW from visible laser diodes was tested for measuring salt content in the seawater from 0 to 4 wt.%. The results are repeatable and the accuracy less than 10-3 is suitable for controlling the salinity degree in the range of 0.5 - 1.7% in the near coastal shrimp farms, especially for the childhood shrimp fields.
