A new method was presented in this paper to measure temperature and an optical fiber based sensor was fulfilled by this way. The sensor was miniaturized, flexible, low cost, lack of interference of electromagnetic, biocompatibility and higher resolution, short response time. It can be used in many aspects, especially in the field of biomedicine.
