Paper Abstract

We present the results from the fabrication and characterization of mechanically induced long period fiber gratings in polarization maintaining photonic crystal fiber (PM-PCF). A supercontinuum source in the range of 600nm - 1700nm is used. This source is generated using a micro-chip laser at 1064nm and a single mode fiber. A long-period grating is induced over 40mm long unjacketed PCF using a V-grooved aluminum plate. External pressure is gradually applied with a metal screw and a torque meter and a loss dip with resonance wavelength is observed. Low insertion losses are depicted from (1-3) dBm with a bandwidth of about 30nm and a loss dip around 15dBm. Sensitivity for this preliminary work is found at 27 dB/Lb. Several applications are potentially possible with the optimization of the transmission spectrum controlled by applied pressure.
