Fiber optic interferometers to sense various physical parameters including temperature, strain, pressure, and refractive index have been widely investigated. They can be categorized into four types: Fabry-Perot, Mach-Zehnder, Michelson, and Sagnac. In this paper, each type of interferometric sensor is reviewed in terms of operating principles, fabrication(More)
Fiber couplers made with photonic crystal fibers (PCF) are reported. Two types of PCF were fabricated by means of stacking a group of silica tubes around a silica rod and drawing them. The fiber couplers were made by use of the fused biconical tapered method. With a fiber that had five hexagonally stacked layers of air holes, a 33/67 coupling ratio was(More)
We have experimentally implemented a multiplexible but compact fiber sensor system suitable for multipoint sensing of hydrogen gas leakage. By making dual cavities along an optical fiber and coating a palladium film only at the end of the fiber tip, the measurement errors induced by the optical source power fluctuation and the mechanical perturbation in the(More)
A wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) coupler has been made with a bending-insensitive holey optical fiber (HOF) by using the fused biconical tapered (FBT) method. The transmission band of the proposed HOF WDM coupler could be easily tuned by adjusting the pulling length during the FBT process. Interestingly, it was observed that the air-hole structure(More)
A 2x2 photonic crystal fiber (PCF) planar lightwave circuit (PLC) splitter, which splits optical power between two PCF channels, has been made by PCF-to-PLC connections. PCF array blocks were lithographically fabricated to have fiber V grooves and used to firmly hold PCFs and align them to the PLC splitter. The proposed splitter showed a rather flat(More)
This paper proposes an optical method which allows determination of the organic compound concentration in water by measurement of the UV (ultraviolet) absorption at a wavelength of 250 nm~300 nm. The UV absorbance was analyzed by means of a multiple linear regression model for estimation of the total organic carbon contents in water, which showed a close(More)
