In this paper, a tapered tip optical fiber probe sensor for localized refractive index (RI) measurements is presented. This sensor’s interaction with analytes is confined to a few micro-meters which makes it a promising candidate for in-vivo or even intra-cellular RI monitoring. This tapered tip was simply fabricated by etching optical fiber with hydrofluoric acid to a conic shape with a sub-micrometer aperture. The sensor was calibrated for RI measurement using different concentrations of NaCl in water. Limit of detection of 6.7×10-5 RIU was achieved for this low-cost sensor.
