Curved tapered optical fibre surface pressure sensor

Abstract

An optical fibre surface pressure sensor capable of measuring the changes in the meniscus forming properties of a liquid is presented. The sensor consists of a tapered single mode silica fibre, mounted with a small curvature and positioned with the tapered region of the fibre immersed in the water. The low angle curve formed by the fibre acts to enhance the… (More)
