Abstract
An optical fiber relative humidity (RH) sensor exploiting Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) is designed in order to achieve a linear response over a large dynamic range with an optimized sensitivity. To further enhance the sensitivity, in-house developed gold nanoparticle film was also synthesized onto a U-shaped and an etched-core region of the optical fiber. A throughout linear response over a dynamic range of ~20-90% RH with a very high sensitivity is observed. Importantly, reducing the core diameter resulted in four time sensitivity enhancement. In addition, the sensor response was observed to be highly reversible and repeatable.
