Abstract
A refractive index insensitive curvature sensor based on cladding-mode resonance of specialty triple-clad fiber (STCF) is proposed. The corresponding mode properties of STCF are investigated theoretically based on the coupled mode theory. The different mode dispersion curves are calculated and a resonance wavelength is obtained. A straightforward experiment is performed to prove the curvature sensitivity. Experimental results shows that the curvature sensitivity can be achieve -11.03374nm/m-1 in the range of 0~1.17m-1, and it also has good linearity. This curvature sensor has the advantages of simple structure, easy manufacturing, highly sensitivity and has no cross-sensitivity when it compared to the other sensors. Thus it can be used for curvature monitoring in time.
