Paper Abstract

A new Mach-Zehnder interferometer sensor , which can simultaneously gauge refractive index (RI) and temperature, is realized. A sphere-trapezoid structure used as a coupler is formed by splicing sphere and trapezoid cone. The extinction ratio of the transmission spectra can achieve 10dB. The RI sensitivities of the two interference valleys are -51.2nm/RIU and -36.5nm/RIU. The temperature sensitivities of them are 0.063nm/°C and 0.064nm/°C. Therefore it can be realized to gauge the RI and the temperature simultaneously. The proposed sensor can also be applied to chemistry and biology, it has broad application prospects.
