Paper Abstract

A new kind of optical liquid drop detecting sensors is presented, using a tapered fiber as the sensing head. The dripping speed of the liquid drop influences the intensity of the reflected and transmitting light inside the tapered fiber, because the reflected or transmitting light intensity depends on the refractive index of the material outside the tapered fiber. The advantages of this type of sensors are experimentally demonstrated such as high sensitivity, reliability and immunity from interferes. The detecting veracity is 100% when dropping speed below 6 drops per second in the experiment. The change of liquid dropping-speed can be monitored.
