Abstract
A comparison of phase sensitivity is conducted for two different types of optical fiber designs with the same outer diameter. The optical fibers are subjected to a hydrostatic pressure load. The finite element model validates well with the analytical solutions. The holey fiber selected for this study showed a 130% phase sensitivity gain over a conventional single-mode optical fiber due to its hollow structure, enabling the external pressure load to strain the core beyond that observed in solid optical fibers. The holey fiber's outer coating also enhances the phase sensitivity, with improved performance over conventional single-mode optical fibers with the same coating.
