Abstract
This paper introduces, for the first time to the authors' knowledge, a novel use of laser diode (LD) in forming a sensor to measure the optical refractive index or concentration of liquids. The way described is also appropriate for precise displacement measurement, location and collimation. Special design by combining a LD and a position sensitive device enables this sensor to work for on-line test and remote control. This sensor is significantly much simpler in structure than those refractometers based on the optical principle of total reflection, which usually need complicated optical and/or electrical systems for achromatization, beam scanning or observation like Abbe Refractometers or those refractometers with CCD. With this sensor, we get a resolution power of refractive index of 0.0001 and a dynamic index range of 1.3330 up to 1.4247, corresponding to a range of sugar concentration in aqueous solution of about 0-52 percent at 20 degrees C. A better result is expectable.
