We report a miniaturized inline Fabry-Perot interferometer directly fabricated on a single-mode optical fiber with a femtosecond laser. The device had a loss of 16 dB and an interference visibility exceeding 14 dB. The device was tested and survived in high temperatures up to 1100°C. With an accessible cavity and all-glass structure, the new device is attractive for sensing applications in high-temperature harsh environments.
