<p>A magnetic field sensor based on the magnetic fluid injected into all the cladding air holes of the solid core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is proposed. The 8.5 cm length of the PCF filled with magnetic fluid relates to single mode fiber to compose a Mach–Zehnder interferometer. The sensor relies on the tunable refractive index of the magnetic fluid and the characteristics of the PCF. A series of magnetic field strength is applied to this sensing structure. From the experimental results, the sensitivity of the magnetic field sensor is obtained as 7.055 × 10<sup> − 4</sup> dB / nT while a small change in wavelength shift is found. Due to a simple and easy fabrication technique, high sensitivity, and compactness, we are confident that the proposed sensor will find potential applications in measuring the magnetic field.</p>
In this article, we present a temperature-sensor based on the solid core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) infiltrated with the magnetic fluid (MF) in all or some parts of the cladding airholes with syringe injection technique. The sensor is used in this project. A Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) modal with 8.5cm length of the proposed PCF sensing section is used for the detection process. The experimental outputs the temperature sensitivity of the intended PCF is −0.38 nm/°C in the range of 25.6 °C to 100.1 °C. This proposed sensing system may find potential applications in medical science and industry.
A temperature-sensor is presented based on the solid core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) infiltrated with the magnetic fluid (MF) in all or some parts of the cladding air holes with the help of the syringe injection technique. The 8.5-cm length of the proposed PCF sensor is used. A Mach–Zehnder interferometer modal is used for the detection process. The applied temperature is given in a range from 25.6°C to 100.1°C. The calculated outcome justifies that a very clear interference spectrum is obtained between the change of the refractive index of the MF and the temperature. From the experimental outputs, the temperature sensitivity of the intended PCF is −0.38 nm / ° C, and at high temperature, it achieves 0.176 nm / ° C. The MF has great sensitivity at high temperature. This proposed sensing system may find potential applications in medical science and industry.
