Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic relative-humidity sensor composed of two silver coating and a polymer film is proposed and developed. Ag coatings are magnetically sputtered, and sandwiched by a dip-coated moisture-sensitive polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film, which constructs a low-fineness Fabry-Perot sensing head. Experimental results show that interference fringe shifts to longer wavelength when relative humidity increases. The interference fringe shifts of two-layer sensor and three-layer sensor are 5.3 nm and 1.9 nm respectively. The linearity of interference fringe shift to relative humidity is averagely 0.9874.
