Paper Abstract

A magnetic-field-tuned photonics device based on magnetic fluid (MF) and a square tapered no-core fiber (NCF) sandwiched between two single-mode fibers (SMFs) has been proposed. The enhanced evanescent field effect in the NCF is achieved by tapering the square NCF utilizing a fusion splicer. The spectral dependence of the proposed device on the applied magnetic-field intensity has been investigated. The results indicate that a maximal sensitivity of -18.7pm/Oe is obtained for a magnetic field strength ranging from 25Oe to 450Oe. The proposed tunable device has several advantages, including low cost, ease of fabrication, compact structure, and high sensitivity.
