Abstract
In this work a strain sensor based on a suspended core fiber is proposed. The sensor comprises a suspended core PCF between SMFs and is based on the multimode interference generated in these transitions. A strain sensitivity study for different sensing heads and stage separation lengths was carried out showing a sensitivity of -2.42 pm/με for the best case. Also the sensing head was tested for curvature and temperature, showing in the first case that it is insensitive to curvature effects, and secondly, that for small sensor lengths it was insensitive to temperature variations.
