Paper Abstract

Stress sensors dedicated for Weigh-in-Motion of road vehicles should exhibit high dynamic range, good accuracy and repeatability, as well as long service life. One of the most promising group of sensors for this application are polarimetric sensors, due to their simplicity and high sensitivity. Preliminary measurements of the optical fiber properties in this application resulted in significant hysteresis being observed even for relatively low stress, which is probably caused by the cladding properties or by the construction of the modulator used in the measurement.
