Sugar content (°Brix) measurement using fiber optic refractometers
Measurement of sugar percentage or ºBrix (1 ºBrix=1% sugar mass percent) is crucial in many applications, such as fruit juice, wine making, carbonated beverage industry and the sugar industry among others.
Periodic perturbations of the optical fiber core refractive index along the fiber length can be obtained using different techniques, such as the exposure to an intense laser irradiation, arc discharge or mechanical deformations as … Read the rest
