Fiber-optic sensing of pressure and temperature

Applied Optics
G B Hocker


The use of a fiber-optic Mach-Zehnder interferometer to measure differences in temperature or pressure between two single-mode fiber arms is described. Temperature or pressure changes are observed as a motion of an optical interference fringe pattern. Values are calculated for the pressure and temperature dependence of the fringe motion. Pressure and temperature measurements are made with the interferometer, and the experimental values for sensitivity are in good agreement with those calculated.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
