A sensor is described for which interference measurements of the phase delay between two propagating modes of different orders in a slab thin-film waveguide are used as the sensing technique. The basic building block of the sensor is a polymer film doped with an indicator dye such as Bromocresol Purple. The modes of two orders such as TM(0) and TM(1) are(More)
A fiber-optic displacement sensor with temporally separated signal and reference channels is proposed. The sensing technique used is based on determining the relative amplitude of the signal and reference pulses that together form a double pulse. The relative amplitude of the pulses in the double pulse is a function of the displacement. A setup to generate(More)
We studied forward-scattered laser light that is produced when the light strikes an abrupt interface (air bubble in water) and when it passes unimpeded through diffused water layers caused by temperature gradients. Measured intensities of the scattered light indicated patterns that are due to both geometrical and physical optics. Distribution of intensities(More)
Whispering gallery modes in microspheres are excited by light delivered to them via optical fibers imbedded in a half-block coupler. The corresponding light intensity resonances in microspheres and coupling of two low-order linearly polarized modes in the fibers, LP₀₁ and LP₁₁, into the microspheres are observed. The LP₀₁ and LP₁₁ modes are delivered to the(More)
