Paper Abstract

In this paper, the methods and properties of growing the reflective mirror on the ends of the optical fiber used in optical fiber sensor is proposed. There are many kinds of methods used for growing the mirror such as plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition, aluminum-coating in vacuum and sol-gel coating. The reflectance and transmittance ratios can be changed from 0.1 to 0.9 with different coating method and parameters. Here, taking the sol-gel coating and vacuum vapor-deposited coating for example, the method and results from the coating test are stated.
