Abstract
An intensity modulated Fiber optic prism based liquid concentration sensor is proposed. The sensing principle is based on total internal reflection (TIR) inside the prism which gets modulated in the vicinity of liquid as a function of refractive index. The precise movement of sensor head in liquids, gives rise to a hysteresis curve which is considered as a measure of liquid concentration. Different liquid concentrations of Sucrose, Saline solution (NaCl) and Glycerin are taken for the study. The sensor exhibits sensitivity of 371.16, 2133.25 and 1501.89 Sucrose, Saline water and Glycerin solutions respectively.
