Experimental Study on Reflective Optical Fiber Hydrogen Sensor Using Two-Wavelength Light Sources


Article Preview

Nowadays, optical fiber hydrogen sensor is one of most important potential of optical fiber sensors. Currently, there are a lot of explorations around this aspect. This paper uses experimental method to study reflective optical fiber hydrogen sensor with two-wavelength light sources. Firstly, the experimental principle was introduced. Based on the principle, experimental scheme, devices, and process are described. By the experiment, the reflectance is the output as the main result. The experiment results describes at last.
