Abstract
We propose the temperature-insensitive bending sensor based on a hole-assisted single polarization fiber (SPF). Without fiber grating structures, the SPF-based sensing probe can provide the sensing technique to measure the bending change. If bending is applied to the SPF, two cutoff wavelengths are shifted to shorter wavelengths and the transmission power is diminished because the structural deformation of the SPF induced by bending changes birefringence depending on principle axes of the SPF. However, the applied temperature variation has no effect on the birefringence change severely and two cutoff wavelengths are not shifted by changing temperature. Therefore, the proposed SPF-based sensing probe with temperature insensitivity can measure the bending change effectively.
