报告摘要:
The fiber abrupt tapering technique is the fabrication method which breaks the adiabatic waveguiding in fiber core and transforms fractional power of the core mode into cladding modes for making miniaturized fiber components. By introducing two adjacent abrupt tapers in a highly Er/Yb codoped silica fiber using a focused CO2 laser beam to make micro Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI), the minimum device length achieved can be as short as 180 um. Fractional power of the core mode is coupled to excite the cladding modes through the first abrupt taper and the residual core mode and the excited cladding modes thus propagate through the different optical paths. The cladding modes and the core mode meet up at the second abrupt taper to produce interferences. The cladding modes can sense the ambient index variations of the external material coating at the phase shifter or at the abrupt tapers. When the external material is coated at the abrupt taper, the mode jumping phenomena can be observed and a higher sensitivity can be achieved in contrast to the situation while the external material is coated surrounding the phase shifter. This micro MZI can be used to detect the micro index variation of 0.002 under a 6.3 picoliter of liquid volume. The corresponding resonant wavelength shift is 0.4 nm. This micro MZI had also been used to detect the concentration variations of glucose solution with a volume of 72 picoliter. Owing to the erbium and ytterbium ions doping in fiber core, the inversion rate is varied when the pump power is launched so that the optical absorption, dispersion and refractive index will be changed to adjust the resonant wavelengths accordingly. The micro MZI so made can be used to achieve phase modulators, pulsed fiber lasers, displacement and curvature sensors, pulse rate sensors, twist angle sensors, and other miniaturized sensing and communication components.
