Abstract

An optical fiber humidity sensor based on an optical Fabry–Perot interferometer is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The sensor is constructed by a short section of hollow-core fiber coated with a polyimide (PI) film. Taking advantage of the direct response of the PI film, a sensitivity of up to 1.309 nm/%RH can be achieved in the humidity change range from 40% RH to 80% RH. The temperature sensitivity is measured to be 43.57 pm/°C when the temperature changes from 25°C to 55°C. Because of its simple structure, fast response time, convenient production, and good reproducibility, the proposed sensor will be competitive in the field of cultural relic humidity monitoring and pharmaceutical storage.
