Abstract
The polarisation state of light may be exploited in single-mode polymer mPOFs for sensing purposes.
The bend-induced birefringence varies linearly with the inverse square of the bend radius, whereas the
twist-induced polarisation rotation varies linearly with the bre twist angle. Both e ects are highly reproducible and show higher sensitivity than their glass counterparts.
