Paper Abstract

The main aim of the research is to design new types of fiber optic transducers based on filled photonic crystal fibers for sensor applications. In our research we propose to use as a filling material nanoparticles’ ferrofluids (Fe3O4 NPs). Optical properties of such transducers are studied by measurements of spectral characteristics’ changes when transducers are exposed to temperature and magnetic field changes. From synthesized ferrofluid several mixtures with different NPs’ concentrations were prepared. Partially filled commercially available photonic crystal fiber LMA 10 (NKT Photonics) was used to design PCF transducers. Their thermo-optic properties were tested in a temperature chamber. Taking into account magnetic properties of synthetized NPs the patch cords based on a partially filled PM 1550 PCF were measured.
