Abstract
We demonstrate a gas sensor based on mode interference in a hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber. Gas absorption of a pump laser beam induces phase modulation of a propagating probe beam, which is detected by use of an in-fiber modal interferometer. An estimated detection limit of ~2 ppm acetylene (~7x10-5 in terms of noise equivalent absorbance or NEA) is achieved with 30-cm-long HC-PBF operating at the near infrared wavelength. This NEA is ~22 times better than state-of-the-art HC-PBF gas sensors based on direct absorption spectroscopy.
