Abstract
The analysis of the temperature property of sensors based on symmetrical metal-cladding optical waveguide (SMCOW) is focused on analyzing the temperature property of reflectivity of SMCOW sensors, which is theoretically studied with single-factor investigation under spectral and angular interrogation scheme. There are mainly four factors influencing the temperature dependence of reflectivity, it is the temperature dependence of refractive index and thickness of guiding layer, along with the temperature dependence of the metal film thickness and metal-dielectric function. The simulation result shows that the effect of temperature on the reflectivity of SMCOW is mainly attributed to the temperature dependence of refractive index and thickness of guiding layeron the contrary, the temperature properties of metal film hardly contributes to the influence of temperature on the reflectivity. Based on the analysis, the sensitivities of SMCOW with guiding layer of different optical glasses are computed under both spectral and angular interrogation. This paper is supposed to provide direction in designing temperature-sensitive SMCOW structure sensors.
