Abstract
A novel, highly sensitive refractive index sensor based on the modal interference in a microtapered telecom grade SMF is presented. The considered structure consists of a uniformly thinned region in between the tapered regions where the original core is virtually absent and the modes are supported by the cladding-ambient region index difference. The core mode evolution within the tapered region and its coupling to the cladding modes has been obtained using the localnormal- mode-matching. The proposed device has extremely high sensitivity ~ 2.6 μm/RIU for biological samples (nse ~ 1.33) and hence should be useful for precision bio/chemical sensing applications.
