Abstract
We present a refractive index (RI) sensor based on a fiber Mach-Zehnder interferometer, which is realized by two cascaded special long period gratings with rotary refractive index modulation (C-RLPFG). The wavelength shift of the refractometer behaves good linear response in a RI range of 1.3342 to 1.3362, and the sensitivity of 14.5pm/mm for 0.01SRI change has been obtained. The sensitivity is 4 times higher than that of M-Z interferometer formed by using normal long period fiber gratings. Such kind of high sensitivity, easy fabrication and simple structure interferometer may find applications in chemical or biochemical sensing field.
