Abstract
In this work, we explore the variation of power losses of PMMA-core plastic optical fiber through tensile tests. Experimental results of received optical power during elastic and plastic deformation process demonstrate the feasibility of POFs as simple intensity-based fiber-optic sensors for Structural Health Monitoring applications beyond complex schemes. A theoretical approach of the POF behavior versus strain is also provided.
