A torsion experimental sensing setup based on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) with photonics crystal fiber is presented. The MZI was fabricated by fusion splicing a piece of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) between two segments of a single-mode fiber (SMF). Here, a spectral MZI fringe shifting is induced by applying torsion over the SMF-PCF-SMF. As a result a torsion sensitivity of 35.79 pm/ and a high visibility of 10 dB were achieved. Finally, it is shown that the sensing arrangement is compact and robust.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
