Paper Abstract

The intermodal sensitivity of a two-mode birefringent holey fiber to strain, temperature and hydrostatic pressure is measured in the spectral domain. In an experimental setup comprising a broadband source, a polarizer, a twomode birefringent holey fiber under a variable physical parameter, an analyzer and a compact spectrometer, the spectral interferograms are resolved. These are characterized by the equalization wavelength at which spectral interference fringes have the largest period due to the zero group optical path difference between the fundamental, the LP01 mode and the higher-order, the LP11 mode. The spectral interferograms are processed to retrieve the phase as a function of the wavelength. From the retrieved phase functions corresponding to different values of the physical parameter, the intermodal sensitivity as a function of wavelength is obtained. Using this approach, the intermodal sensitivity to strain, temperature and hydrostatic pressure is measured for two orthogonal (x and y) polarizations.
