Paper Abstract

An in-line fiber Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) based on twin-hole fiber for humidity sensing was proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The twin-hole fiber was filled in black phosphorus (BP) by capillary absorption method, and then was sandwiched in between two single mode fibers (SMFs) to form intermodal interference. Utilizing the sensitivity of BP to ambient humidity, the MI could realize humidity measurement. Experiment results reveal that the interference intensity changes in the RH range of 20-80%RH, and the sensitivity was -0.028 dB/%RH. This sensor has great potential for application in chemical and biology fields.
