Paper Abstract

The multimode fiber optical temperature sensor system is a cobalt salt solution (CoCl26H2O) in the isoptopyl alcohol and water thermochromic transducer based on the dual-wavelength difference absorption principle. The digital locking-in detection, the operation of signal division and temperature calibration is operated by IBM PC computer. The measurement temperature range of the fiber-optic sensor system is 30 degree(s)C to 50 degree(s)C, accuracy is +/- 0.15 degree(s)C, and the temperature resolution is 0.02 degree(s)C. The most accurate measurements resulting from repeated stability tests over 6 and 12 hours (40 degree(s)C) are +/- $0.05 degree(s)C and +/- 0.18 degree(s)C, and the temperature mean is displayed in real time.
