Abstract
A novel thermal anemometer based on a core offset single-mode fiber (SMF) combined with a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) coated with silver film is proposed. Light from a pump laser at 1450 nm propagating down the fiber is coupled by the offset into the fiber cladding. A silver coating was deposited on the fiber surface over the Bragg grating structure to absorb the light. As a result, the dynamic thermal equilibrium would be reached between the laser heating and air flow cooling by monitoring the FBG's wavelength shift. Experimental results reveal that the Bragg wavelength shift is related to the flow velocity and the highest resolution of the thermal anemometer is about 0.05 m/s in the range of 0-17.31 m/s.
