Abstract
Although Y2O3-ZrO2 fiber-optic sensor has been developed for contact measurement of temperature higher than 2000 degree(s)C, its performance is not as good as that of sapphire fiber-optic sensor below 1900 degree(s)C due to the large optical loss of the Y2O3-ZrO2 fiber. In order to improve the Y2O3-ZrO2 fiber-optic sensor for ultra-high-temperature applications, in this work, based on a newly developed rectangular Y2O3-ZrO2 single-crystal waveguide with much lower optical loss, an improved Y2O3-ZrO2 waveguide-fiber-optic sensor has been developed. The sensor has been tested up to near 2300 degree(s)C, we estimate that, the improved sensor has similar performance as the sapphire fiber-optic sensor in accuracy and resolution, except the disadvantage of relatively short waveguide. In addition, in this work, instead of the previous volatile and toxic BeO-coated probe, we use a multi-ions-doped sensor head, which is much stable and safe.
