Paper Abstract

Polarization maintaining photonic crystal fibers constitute a new class of birefringent optical fibers with strong separation of polarization modes and large possibilities of tailoring different parameters. These advantages appear to be perfect for designing optical fiber sensor, so we decided to test this type of fiber. A plane-wave method was used to numerically calculate the effective refractive indices and the field distribution of the propagation modes. The simulation results were compared with experimental measurements of the birefringence and finally the fiber was experienced as a sensor with fully automated set-up. The verification of temperature sensitivity simulations was performed too.
