Abstract
An ultrasensitive optical fiber twist sensor is proposed by employing a Sagnac interferometer based on polarization-maintaining elliptical core fibers (PM-ECFs). The twist effects are theoretically analyzed and experimentally demonstrated. Based on the photoelastic effect, the wavelength shift in response to twist rate turns out linear tendency and is torsion-direction-dependent. The maximum torsion sensitivity reaches 18.59593nm/(rad/m) (or 0.67582nm/°) for clockwise (CW) torsion direction and 15.83073nm/(rad/m) for anticlockwise (ACW) torsion direction, respectively. Furthermore, it is further improved up to 1.675 nm/° by rotating two ends of PM-ECF simultaneously. The prominent advantage of ultrasensitivity keep it meritorious in the applications of spaceflight and constructional engineering.
