Paper Abstract

An all optical fiber temperature sensor with polarization modulation is described in this paper. The principle of the sensor is based on the thermal effect of the propagation constant of the orthogonal polarization modes in a high birefringence fiber. The construction of the sensor is as follows. A linear polarization light beam is injected into a high birefringence fiber and the output light beam is split into two beams, the two beams pass through the analyzer into detector respectively. In this way not only the magnitude of the temperature but also the variation direction of the temperature can be estimated. This sensor is designed for measuring the average temperature in large area, such as in an oil tank or in reservoir. The construct and measurement results are described.
