Abstract
We present a high-sensitivity hydrostatic pressure sensor based on a dual-polarization fiber grating laser. To enhance the sensitivity, the laser is embedded in a composite structure to effectively convert the pressure into intra-cavity birefringence. The measurement is carried out by monitoring the beat frequency between the two orthogonal polarization laser modes. The pressure sensitivity reaches 0.17 GHz/MPa within the range 0 to 10 MPa, about one hundred times higher than the bare laser, and the minimal detectable pressure change is as small as 10 kPa.
