Paper Abstract

In this work we decided to show the behavior about the bend loss caused by soft and swellable materials. The principal measurements of fiber bend loss caused by soft and swellable materials were done with perturbation periods of 1 mm to 20 mm, because we needed to be close in the range of small curture. We used soft materials that have different moduli of Young. To accomplish this measure, we used single mode and multimode fibers. We had to watch the behavior over range of wavelength 1400nm to 1600nm with different radii of curvature. We would like to point out that the material that has the highest modulus of Young causes the highest loss. Ours results show that the highest attenuation and fastest sensor operation can be achieved at respectively long periods of perturbation, more than 10 mm in our experiments.
