Paper Abstract

Results of our research on embedded highly birefringent polymer microstructured fibers are presented. A composite material sample with fibers embedded between two layers of a multi-layer composite structure is fabricated and characterized. Temperature sensitivities of the polymer fibers are measured in a free space and compared with the fibers embedded in the composite material. It appeared that highly birefringent polymer microstructured fibers exhibit a strong increase in temperature sensitivity when embedded in the composite material, which is due to the stress-induced changes in birefringence created by thermally-induced strain.
