Paper Abstract

This paper shows a method to minimize the temperature sensitivity by coating an elliptical core fiber with an additional thin elliptical cladding. We analyze the temperature and the strain sensitivities of the fiber and discuss the design of such temperature-insensitive fibers with high strain sensitivities, suitable for smart structures and skin sensors.
