Paper Abstract

A new fiber-optic temperature sesnor using a polarization maintaining fiber and a transverse Zeeman laser based on heterodyne interferometry has been developed. The temperature variation is detected by coupling two orthogonal linear polirization components of a laser beam, each differently phase-modulated during transmitting a birefringent single-mode polarization maintaining fiber. A transverse He-Ne Zeeman laser was developed to achieve heterodyning demodulation of the phase-shift caused by the temperature of the fiber. Experimental result demonstrates that this sensor has the temperature resolution of 0.0032°C with a very wide dynamic range. Besides, this fiber sensor has the advantages of simple construction and ruggedness against pressure turbulence.
