Abstract
Sensing at small dimensions in biological and medical environments requires miniaturized sensors with high sensitivity and measurement resolution. In this work a small optical fiber probe was developed to apply the Vernier effect, allowing for enhanced temperature sensing. Such effect is an effective way of magnifying the sensitivity of a sensor or measurement system in order to reach higher resolutions. The device is a multimode silica Fabry-Perot interferometer structured at the edge of a tapered multimode fiber by focused ion beam milling. The Vernier effect is generated from the interference between different modes in the Fabry-Perot interferometer. The sensor was characterized in temperature, achieving a sensitivity of -654 pm/°C in a temperature range from 30°C to 120°C. The Vernier effect provided a temperature sensitivity over 60-fold higher than the sensitivity of a normal silica Fabry-Perot interferometer without the effect. The temperature resolution obtained was 0.14°C, however this value was limited by the resolution of the OSA and can be improved further to less than 0.015°C.
