Abstract
We demonstrated a highly sensitive evanescent-wave-based water salinity sensor using a rectangular optical microfiber Sagnac interferometer. The microfiber has a rectangular cross-section with widths of 4.0 μm by 2.5 μm and total length of 36 mm. For water salinity from 0‰ to 40‰, a high sensitivity of 1.95 nm/(1‰) was achieved at the wavelength of 1550 nm, indicating a detection limit of 0.01‰. The proposed sensor has advantages of high sensitivity, compact size, ease for fabrication, and potentially low-cost. It is very useful for undersea applications and manufacture process controlling where monitoring small change in water salinity is required.
