Paper Abstract

The use of Single Mode Polarization-Maintaining Side-Hole (SMPM-SH) fibers for direct measurement of transverse force has been studied theoretically and experimentally. Based on results of Finite Element modeling reported elsewhere it was known that certain SMPM-SH fibers exhibit higher sensitivity to transverse force than a standard SMPM fiber. In order to verify these predictions, an experiment was performed. Measurement results agreed well with theoretical predictions. However, more systematic research is needed to determine the relationship between the sensitivity, dimensions and geometry of the holes.
