Paper Abstract

We introduce a novel simple current sensor, which is based on a fiber Bragg grating covered by a uniform coat of aluminum thin film. The Bragg wavelength of the fiber grating will shift when the current flowing through the film varies due to the Joule heat generated by the current. The relationship between the square of the current intensity and the wavelength shift is basically linear. In the experiment, we got a current sensitivity of about 2.31x10MIN3nm(mA)2.
