Abstract
We report an optical fiber multiparameter sensor for refractive index and temperature measurements. The proposed sensor is composed by a microcavity in multimode fiber, assisted by Bragg gratings (FBGs) in singlemode fiber. The microcavity is engraved in a multimode optical fiber by using the femtosecond laser micromachining. The sensor is characterized through microcavity immersion in water and based on its temperature variation. The results show that it is possible to obtain refractive index and temperature measurements with sensitivities of 1625 μW/RIU (refractive index unit) and of 0.23 μW/°C, with resolution of 1.8 × 10-4 RIU and of 1.3°C.
