CONTENTS OF MY INTERNSHIP FABRICATION OF A 4-PORT OPTICAL FIBER COUPLER EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORITICAL ANALYSIS OF SURFACE PLASMON DEVICES (SPR) BASED ON OPTICAL FIBER
FABRICATION OF A 4-PORT OPTICAL FIBER COUPLER AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO BUILD A COUPLER THAT CAN BE USED MULTIPURPOSELY FOR DIFFERENT PROJECTS IN THE FUTURE. I APPLIED THE COUPLER TO OBTAIN THE REFLECTION AND TRANSMISSION SPECTRUM OF A TILTED FIBER BRAGG GRATING. DETAILS ON THESE IN THE COMING SLIDES……
FIBER OPTIC COUPLER Coupler used to direct light into the Fiber Bragg Grating. L C =Coupling Length ; L W = Waist Length ; L T = Taper length
Plot of power P 1-3 (red) P 2-4 (green) with distance along coupling length P 1-3 (Power in wave guide 1 to 3) = cos 2 (kz) P 2-4 (Power in wave guide 2 to 4) = sin 2 (kz)
FBG and tilted FBG Resonance condition for FBG λ B = 2nt For tilted FBG the condition holds as λ B = 2nt cos (x) where x is the angle of tilt But why is the tilted FBG? Because my fiber is DCF (double clad fiber)
Steps Etching of two DCF fibers around 15 cm length Twisting of the two fibers along the etched portion. Fixing the coupler to a platform to make it ready for measurements Characterization of the coupler and observing the spectrum of the tilted FBG
SURFACE PLASMON RESONANCE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS OF SPR ON A NOVEL H-SHAPED FIBER SIMULATION HAS BEEN DONE IN MATLAB PURPOSE OF SIMULATION IS TO ANALYSE AND COMPARE WITH EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS
PHENOMENON OF SPR k*n g *sinθ = k((n s 2 *ε m )/( n s 2 + ε m ))^0.5 MOMENTUM TRANSFER CONDITION
APPLICATION As a biosensor or a chemical sensor As refractive index of sensing medium changes so will the resonance wavelength So the resonance wavelength can plotted with refractive index and this calibration is used to create biosensor It can indirectly be used to measure concentration of analyte which perturbs refractive index ADVANTAGE : Very high sensitve sensors ~ 3000 nm/RIU. Apt for the nano world.
Why H-shaped Fiber? Birefringent fiber with elliptical core Two orthogonal single modes with no interference in visible region. Can be used to measure two quantities simultaneously But for now analysis is done for one axis that is the axis along the cleavage….
N-Layer Model Parameters N=3 for our cases n1=core n2=metal n3=dielectric sensing medium Core diameter =10 nm Metal thickness (gold) =50 nm and Dielectric thickness = 25 nm
