Compatibility of Temperature Sensor and Polarization Filter Based on Au Film and Glycerin Selectively Infilling Photonic Crystal Fibers

The Au film and glycerin selectively infilling photonic crystal fibers are analyzed by the finite element method. One cladding air hole is coated with Au film and infiltrated with glycerin to form a defect core. The simulation results show that both of the defect core modes formed on the glycerin and Au film can inspire resonance with core modes. The maximum sensitivity can reach to 2.50 nm/ ∘C in x polarized direction and 2.00 nm/ ∘C in y polarized direction for the temperature sensor, respectively. Furthermore, we obtain that the confinement losses of the photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) can meet with 321.442 dB/cm and 445.958 dB/cm at a short wavelength band (1460 ∼1530 nm) and an extended wavelengths band (1360 ∼1460 nm) for x polarized direction and y polarized direction respectively, which can be applied in many polarization filter devices as well. The compatibility of temperature sensor and polarization filter based on an identical structure can be realized at different wavelengths.
