Photonic Crystal Fibers for Liquid Sensing Applications: A Review

Author : Sudhir kumar 1 Dilip Kumar 2

Date of Publication :25th March 2021

Abstract: Till date, photonic researchers and scientists discovered rapid technological changes in the optical fibers, a new class of optical fiber i.e., Photonic Crystal Fibers (PCF) shows a great potential in replacing conventional optical fibers due to their numerous advantages such as adjustability to guide light in a desired direction etc. Filling of airholes with chemical analyte makes it suitable for liquid sensing applications. However, achieving a high sensitivity for liquid sensing is still a challenge. This article presents a detail theoretical investigation of some existing PCF designs based on different geometries and core structures for liquid chemical sensing applications. The investigation is done based on optical properties viz. relative sensitivity and confinement loss.
