Paper Abstract

An optical waveguide for measuring the change of refractive index by using a photonic crystal fiber is designed. The simulation results show that a variation of 0.032 refractive index unit (RIU) could shift the resonant wavelengths of 245nm and 68nm when the refractive indices of liquid are 1.5 and 1.7, respectively. The sensitivity for the refractive index measurement of about 1.3×10-6RIU is achieved.
