Paper Abstract

Side-hole optical fibers are directed towards construction of pressure sensors owing to their extremely high sensitivity to the pressure. However, the fact of negative effect of polymer protective coatings on deformation of optical fiber characteristic has been discovered. In this work the efforts were made to eliminate this undesirable phenomenon by use of standard protective coatings used for production of telecommunication optical fibers. The results of these investigations have appeared negative.
