Fiber Optic Sensor for High-Sensitivity Salinity Measurement
José Javier Sánchez Mondragón
Summary or description
A highly sensitive salinity sensor based on a two-core optical fiber is demonstrated for both high- and low-concentration regimes. Salinity of several aqueous solutions is measured in the ranges from 0 to 5 mol/L and from 0 to 1 mol/L with sensitivities of 14.0086 and 12.0484 nm/(mol/L), respectively. The achieved sensitivity is ∼19 times higher than that recently reported for polymide-coated photonic crystal fibers.
