Abstract
An optical fiber refractometer based on the Fresnel reflection in the fiber tip and twin FBG interferometer located near the fiber tip for light intensity referencing is reported. A wavelength scanning DFB diode laser was used for RI sensor interrogation. Signal processing in the Fourier domain allows intensity-independent accurate measurements for liquids and gases with practically any RI. A resolution of 5 - 10 5-5 was demonstrated experimentally using different liquids including an anti-reflection index-matching liquid. Simple construction and the use of low-cost components make it interesting for many applications.
