Abstract
A multimodal interferometer based on a new microstructured fiber tip is proposed for detection of the evaporation process of acetone. The new geometry consists of a capillary tube in which an offset Ge-doped core is fused and spliced at the end of a single-mode fiber. The fiber tip sensor structure was immersed in liquid acetone and the evaporation process of acetone was monitored in real time. Due to the refractive index variation of the external medium with increasing temperature, a short detection time of ∼1  s was achieved.
