In this paper, we report a fiber optic microphone with a large dynamic range. The probe of microphone consists of bi-fiber Fabry-Perot cavity architecture. The wavelength of the working laser is about 1552.05nm. At this wavelength, the interference spectroscopies of these two fiber Fabry-Perot cavities have a quadrature shift. So the outputs of these two fiber Fabry-Perot sensors are orthogonal signal. By using orthogonal signal demodulation method, this microphone can output a signal of acoustic wave. Due to no relationship between output signal and the linear region on interference spectroscopy, the microphones have a large maximum acoustic pressure above 125dB.
An optofluidic anti-resonant reflecting guidance has been proposed and experimental demonstrated for the measurement of liquid refractive index. Two micro-channels were fabricated for the delivery of the liquid sample in the hollow core photonic crystal fiber by using femtosecond laser micromachining, serving as an inlet and outlet. The refractive index can be detected by using the resonant condition of the Fabry-Perot resonator, which is interrogated through the wavelength shift and of the lossy dip in the transmission spectrum. The experimental results show that the sensitivity of up to 1328 nm/RIU is achieved for the refractive index in the range from 1.345 to 1.363 RIU, respectively. The proposed sensor appears to have potential applications of precise measurement in chemistry, medicine, and biology.
