Abstract: In this article, a PCF sensor is designed and computed to detect chemicals in the refractive indices range of 1.52-1.56. In this proposed design, three and four concentric discs fabricated in the core which provides ultrahigh sensitivity and circular porous cladding pattern confines large fraction of power in core region. This novel proposed design demonstrates ultrahigh relative sensitivity 86.35% and 85.02% for four and three disc models. These sensing discs are filled with different sensing fluid. This proposed PCF design overcomes some experimental challenge such as PCF probe needs some displacement after filling the sensing liquid. These uniform circular sensing discs around the solid core supports better evanescent field matter interaction for sensing application.
