Paper Abstract

Fibre-top devices (micromachined devices fabricated on top of a single mode optical fibre) provide unprecedented opportunities for the development of user-friendly, all-optical miniaturized sensors. Unfortunately, the impact of this technology has been hampered by the high costs of fabrication. In this paper we introduce a new generation of fibre-top-like devices that can be fabricated with cost-effective processes and still maintain all the advantages of fibre-top technology.
