A standard polarization maintaining optical fiber (SMPM- single mode polarization maintain) has either an elliptical core or/and an elliptical inner cladding (bow-tie, panda). These kind of fibers usually display low or modest sensitivity to pressure and high sensitivity to temperature. The side-hole optical fibers having two hollow spaces symmetrically placed on both sides of the core are characterized by much higher sensitivity to pressure. This paper presents results of investigations on sensitivity to pressure and on sensitivity to temperature, which can attain the values of 140 rad/MPa*m and 1 rad/K*m, respectively.
