Paper Abstract

An acoustic vibration sensor is investigated and demonstrated by using a tapered triple cladding fiber (TCF). It is fabricated by tapering a length of 2 cm TCF which is spliced between two single mode fibers (SMF). The TCF consists of core, inner cladding, middle cladding and outer cladding. After the tapering process, this structure becomes a tapered coaxial fiber coupler which presents a periodic filtering transmission spectrum. The surrounding vibration perturbation can be directly demodulated by intensity detection of the transmission power at a particular wavelength. The experimental result shows that the maximum frequency response of 700 kHz is achieved.
