Abstract
This experiment presents the characterization of a medium birefringence single mode optical fiber within a composite, when submitted to radial strength. The system operation is based on elasto-optic effect, which induces birefringence in the optical fiber, modifying the polarization state of the guided light. The changes in the polarization state of the signal are converted into intensity variations and are detected by a silicon photodiode and analyzed using a microcomputer.
