High Fidelity Gas Sensing with Photonic Crystal Fibers

Shijie Zheng, Masoud Ghandehari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter describes the use of photonic crystal fibers treated with long period grating (PCF-LPG) used for gas sensing. We set out to determine the best PCF configuration design for optimal performance. Numerical simulations were carried out to better understand the mode characteristics of a given PCF configuration and role of the Bragg grating in generating the cladding mode for gas sensing. This was used for determination of optimal PCF structure for the cladding mode coupling.
