Abstract
We experimentally demonstrate a novel all-fiber Sagnac loop hybrid interferometer (SLHI) based on a highlybirefringent photonic crystal fiber with two asymmetric cores. Two cores exhibit unique birefringence properties and the light launched into them propagates with negligible coupling. Fast Fourier transform analysis of the transmission spectrum shows six frequency peaks in the spatial domain due to multiple interferences comprising the intra-core and inter-core mode interferences characterized by the four-beam interference model. The device response is investigated under the application of torsion, strain and temperature by measuring the phase-shift responses of three fiber interferences in the SLHI. The device application in simultaneous multi-parameter measurement is also discussed.
