Paper Abstract

Polyelectrolyte multilayer thin films were coated onto flat glass substrates and optic fibers by using the ionic self-assembly technology. The deposition of the multilayers was monitored by using UV-vis spectroscopy, and the assembled thin films were characterized by small-angle X-ray reflectivity. Optic fiber polymer Fabry-Perot cavities were created by assembling polyelectrolytes onto the end faces of glass fibers, and the Fabry-Perot interference phenomena has been observed. It can be expected that novel fiber optical devices, such as Fabry-Perot filters, reflectors and Fabry-Perot cavity-based fiber optic sensors, can be developed via this approach.
