Abstract
This paper presents results of initial studies on polarization interferometry in fiber optic smart structures. The smart structures based on highly birefringent fibers embedded in a specially prepared cylindrical epoxy cylinders were subjected to selected deformation effects mostly 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 birefringent fibers influenced by the same deformation effects.
