Abstract
A Long period grating (LPG) with a period of 111 μm was fabricated in the highly birefringent (Hi-Bi) optical fibre with the aim of developing a sensor for chirality measurements. The LPG sensor was exposed to different concentrations of glucose D(+) and fructose D(-) in water, which have similar structures but exhibit opposite optical rotations, i.e. chirality. The behaviour of the resonance bands of the submodes corresponding to the two orthogonal polarization states was different depending on the chirality of the compound, thus allowing discrimination between two compounds.
