A compact thermometer based on a broadband microfiber coupler tip is demonstrated in this paper. The thermometer can measure a broad temperature range from room temperature to 1283°C. This is the highest temperature measured with a silica optical fiber device. An average sensitivity of 11.96pm/°C was achieved for a coupler tip diameter of ~3 µm.
