A probe temperature sensor is constructed by attaching a long single mode fiber to a short (a few millimeters) dual mode elliptical core (e-core) fiber with an offset at the interface. The other endface of the e-core fiber is carefully polished to increase the reflectivity. The LP01 and LP11even modes are excited in the e-core fiber which establishes a spatial two-lobe intensity pattern within the fiber. A temperature variation on the e-core fiber oscillates these two-lobe intensity pattern which gives rise to an intensity variation of the reflected light in the single mode fiber. A resolution of 0.5 degree(s)C has been achieved over the range of 25 degree(s)C to 122 degree(s)C. By adjusting the length of the dual mode e-core fiber, the output of this sensor can be linearized.
