Paper Abstract

We have measured the phase sensitivity to temperature of a fibre Fabry-Perot (FFP) formed by splicing multimode tellurite (TeO2) glass fibre to singlemode silica fibre. The free spectral ranges of two FFPs of different lengths were consistent with the values expected from independent determinations of the core refractive indices. The phase sensitivity was 89.3 ± 0.3rad m-1 K-1 at a central wavelength of 1536 nm, compared with 99.8 rad m-1 K-1 for silica fibre.
