Paper Abstract

We demonstrate the first application of the periodic damage tracks in optical fibers formed by the fiber fuse. A refractive index sensor with a sensitivity of 350 nm/refractive index unit (RIU) is experimentally demonstrated. This technique can allow mass production by incorporating small sections of the damaged fiber into each device. It can also be applied widely in different types of sensing systems by coating sensing material on the damaged fiber’s cladding surface.
