Special fibers are mainly prepared by material system modification or structure change of the conventional fused silica fiber with the UV-curable resin coating. Material system modification of the fibers is reviewed, and special structures introduced in the fiber cross section and fiber longitudinal direction are also explained. Special fiber are tolerable to more influence by the physical parameters such as the temperature, strain, pressure, rotation, electric field, magnetic field, and moisture. Measurement of each physical parameter with special fibers are explained.
