Paper Abstract

In this work we investigated the fabrication of a singlemode-multimode-singlemode (SMS) fibre structure based on a chalcogenide (As2S3 and AsxS1-x) multimode fibre (MMF) sandwiched between two standard silica singlemode fibres (SMFs) using a commercial fibre fusion splicer. The temperature dependence of this hybrid fibre structure was also investigated. A first proof of concept showed that the hybrid SMS fibre structure has an average experimental temperature sensitivity of 50.63 pm/°C over a temperature range of 20 °C~100°C at wavelengths around 1.55 μm. The measured results show a general agreement with numerical simulations based on a guided-mode propagation analysis method. Our result provides a potential platform for the development of compact, high-optical-quality and robust sensing devices operating at the mid-infrared wavelength range.
