Abstract

A novel and highly sensitive liquid level sensor based on a polymer optical fiber Bragg grating (POFBG) is reported for the first time. The sensitivity of the sensor is found to be 57 pm/cm of liquid, enhanced by more than a factor of 5 when compared to an equivalent sensor based on silica fiber.
