Abstract
A new kind of SCF (Single Crystal Fiber), Y-ZrO2 (Y2O3 stabilized ZrO2) SCF has been provided to substitute for Al2O3 SCF in high-temperature optic sensors, comparing for Al2O3 SCF, it has a higher melting point which can enable sensors to be operated at a higher temperature (> 2000 degree(s)C). In this paper, Y-ZrO2 SCF is grown by means of Laser Heated Pedestal Growth method, its growth and optical characteristics have been studied, fibers with diameters of 300 - 500 micrometers and lengths of 100 - 250 mm have been obtained. Experimental results show that these Y-ZrO2 SCFs can be possibly used in high-temperature optic sensors.
