This is one of the highest index sensitivities achieved with an optical fiber sensor. The coatings consist of arrays of bi-metal nano-wires (typically 36 nm in radius and 20 μm in length), supported by a silicon dioxide thin film on a thin substrate of germanium, the nano-wires being perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the D-shaped fiber.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9863||ISSN:||01469592||Rights:||© 2014 Optical Society of America||Type:||Article|
