Paper Abstract

A quasi-distributed fibre optics polarimetric sensor has been studied both theoretically and experimentally. Theoretical results demonstrate the feasibility of such a sensor when a polarization-maintaining optical fibre has been properly designed. Two designs are proposed. Distributed detection of water has been demonstrated with a standard polarization-maintaining fibre whose cladding was locally removed by chemical etching.
