In this contribution, optic fibers of a serial of doping proportions were prepared and tested. It’s found that B could decrease the sensitivity of refractive index to the temperature, and the sensitivity decreased 2% as the B’s molar percentage increased 1%. By comparing fiber samples’ test results, the proportion of Si: B: Ge to achieve the lowest Δn/ΔT was 0.75: 0.15: 0.1. After balancing the Δn/ΔT and loss, the recommended proportion of Si: B: Ge was given as 0.77: 0.15: 0.08. With this method, the optic fiber delay lines’ time delay could be reduced to 30 ps/km/°C, and their loss is lower than 0.5dB/km at 1550nm wavelength. Besides B and Ge, other kinds of elements are now being used to add into the fiber to improve the property of delay, and decay lines will make the photonic sensing more reliable and stable.
