Abstract
Two novel content meters for liquid refractive index or concentration measurement are proposed based on the simple reflex fiber optic sensor configurations. One sensor exploits a reflex and concentrically arranged fiber probe structure which is very similar to the traditional intensity-modulated fiber optic displacement sensors, but the light captured by receiving fibers is modulated by the varied solute concentration, being in proportion to the liquid refractive index, instead of displacement. The other sensor works based on detecting the edge shift of the reflected light spot, which is modulated by the refractive index variation of the liquid. Theoretical analysis and simulations are carried out with the measurement range of refractive index from 1.0 to 1.5.
