Paper Abstract

Presented is a compact, all-PCF modal interferometer made by fusion splicing. The splices were performed in such a way as to cause the holes of the PCF to collapse over the length of the splice. The modal interferometer is created by the segment of a birefringent PCF, including the micro-collapses at the ends, and SMF-28 pigtails spliced to it. Obtained spectra of the interferometer and an estimation of its parameters are presented. The effect of tensile strain on the spectrum is illustrated. The application possibilities of the constructed interferometer for sensors are given.
