Results of initial studies of multiplexed polarimetric fiber optic sensing systems for smart structures applications are presented. The prepared polarimetric smart structures based on Fibercore bow-tie fibers were subjected to deformation effects such as those induced by hydrostatic pressure and temperature, whereas polarization properties of the transmitted optical signal have been investigated. The presence of the smart structure modifies the output characteristics of the highly birefringent fiber due to elastic properties of the structure. The applied experimental procedure had an objective to compare the phenomena occurring in both: the embedded fibers and the separated highly birefringent fibers influenced by the same deformation effects.
