Abstract
Fiber laser sensor based on multimode interference (MMI) effect can achieve high sensitivity with lower temperaturestrain cross sensitivity by designing optimally the MMI structure. An erbium-doped fiber laser for temperature, stress and refractive sensing based on single mode fiber spliced a short section of no-core fiber was proposed in this paper. The optical field characteristics of this MMI structure have been analyzed, indicating the spectral filtering effect existed. An erbium-doped fiber laser with the MMI structure inserted as the sensor element, the enhanced sensing sensitivity is achieved on the sensing experiments of ambient temperature, mechanical stress and liquid refractive index. The sensitivity of this MMI-based fiber laser sensor is up to 13.24 pm/°C with the measured range from 30 °C to 220 °C, 1.29pm/με from 0 to 7776.05με, 180.21nm/RIU from 1.34 to 1.42, respectively.
