Abstract
A fiber-optic refractive index sensor based on terahertz multimode interference in a singlemode-multimode-singlemode fiber structure (SMS) is numerically demonstrated for the first time in the literature. The shift of spectral transmission is investigated as function of external refractive index. Moreover, the coupling efficiency between optical modes at singlemode and multimode sections are determined. The proposed sensor reaches average sensitivity of ~5 GHz/RIU (refractive index unit) over a refractive index range of 1.4-1.5.
