Abstract
Fibre optic modal interferometry has been around for long as a sensing concept. Initially mainly supported on the utilization of standard Hi-Bi fibres associated to polarimetric modal interferometry, later this sensing approach evolved to modal interference based on spatial modes propagating in the core, and on spatial modes propagating in the core and in the cladding, with coupling performed by fibre devices such as long period gratings and tapers. More recently the outcome of Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCF) originated a burst of activity around the concept of modal interferometry for sensing. The reasons for that viewed in a historic perspective are presented in this work.
