The response of a pressure cell with copper diaphragm of different dimensions for the measurement of pressure using a fused multimode fiber optic coupler is presented. As the pressure varies, the deflection of the diaphragm varies and it modulates the intensity of the reflected light entering into the multimode fused coupler. The sensor is operated in back slope of its characteristic displacement curve and it enabled to sense larger range of pressures. The effect of variation of diameter and thickness of the diaphragm is also studied. The experimental results show that the sensitivity, linearity of the sensor is good and it may finds application in monitoring pressure in industries.
