Microfiber loop resonator (MLR) and microfiber knot resonator (MKR) are fabricated using melt-stretching method for applications in temperature and current sensor, respectively. The MLR is embedded into low refractive index polymer for robustness. Although the spacing of the transmission comb spectrum of the MLR is unchanged with temperature, the extinction ratio of the spectrum is observed to decrease linearly with temperature due to induced changes in the material's refractive index. The slope of the extinction ratio reduction against temperature is about 0.043dB/°C. With the assistance of a copper wire that is wrapped by the MKR, resonant wavelength can be tuned by varying the electric current delivered to the wire. The resonant wavelength change is based on the thermally induced optical phase shift in the MKR due to the heat produced by the flow of electric current over a short transit length. It is shown that the wavelength shift is linearly proportional to the square of current in the copper wire with a tuning slope of 46 pm/A 2.
