Optical fibers with layers of glass-ceramics are considered and tested with respect to their use in different environments as single- and multimode lightguides. Glass-ceramic optical fibers are tested that have different material compositions, cross-section topologies, and coefficients of thermal expansion (CTEs). Stress-induced optical phase-temperature effects can be studied with glass ceramics that have CTEs of around zero, and the glass ceramic sensors are compared to nontreated fibers to study the dependencies of the fibers'' parameters on induced stress and temperature. The application of glass-ceramics with various values of linear CTE to the fibers is studied to scale the characteristics of a glass-ceramic fiber-optic thermometer for several temperature ranges. The sensor can be stabilized when the pure stress-temperature effect is isolated. These glass-ceramic optical fibers are shown to provide unique characteristics for the use of fiber-optic measuring devices in certain measurement environments.
