Abstract
The deposition of a non-metallic thin-film in a symmetrically coated tapered optical fiber leads to the generation of resonances due to guidance of a mode in the thin-film. At certain conditions, the resonances overlap each other, which can be avoided with an asymmetric coated tapered optical fiber, which permits to obtain resonances for TM and TE polarization separately. Numerical results showing the sensitivity to coating thickness and surrounding medium refractive index are also presented for both polarizations.
