A simple linear cavity erbium-doped fiber laser based on a Fabry-Perot filter which consists of a pair of fiber Bragg gratings is proposed for tunable and switchable single-longitudinal-mode dual-wavelength operation. The single-longitudinal-mode is obtained by the saturable absorption of an unpumed erbium-doped fiber together with a narrow-band fiber Bragg(More)
The spectral and annealing properties of a series of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) written in both H(2)-loaded and H(2)-free fibers by use of 800nm femtosecond laser pulse irradiation and created through a phase mask, have been investigated. It is found that type II FBGs inscribed in H(2)- loaded fibers exhibit superior spectral quality when compared with(More)
A Mach-Zehnder interferometer based on a twin-core fiber was proposed and experimentally demonstrated for gas pressure measurements. The in-line Mach-Zehnder interferometer was fabricated by splicing a short section of twin-core fiber between two single mode fibers. A micro-channel was created to form an interferometer arm by use of a femtosecond laser to(More)
We demonstrate an optical Fabry-Perot interferometer fiber tip sensor based on an etched end of multimode fiber filled with ultraviolet adhesive. The fiber device is miniature and robust, in a convenient reflection mode of operation, has a high temperature sensitivity of 213 pm/°C within the range from 55 to 85°C, a good refractive index(More)
Optical Fabry-Perot interferometer sensors based on inner air-cavity is featured with compact size, good robustness and high strain sensitivity, especially when an ultra-thin air-cavity is adopted. The typical shape of Fabry-Perot inner air-cavity with reflection mode of operation is elliptic, with minor axis along with and major axis perpendicular to the(More)
A new type long period fiber grating is fabricated in all-solid photonic bandgap fiber by periodically drilling microholes using femtosecond laser pulse irradiation. Such a structure introduces a strong refractive index modulation in the waveguide structure and hence exhibits a compact grating dimension. Both the simulation and the experimental results(More)
