Paper Abstract

Two new configurations of high-birefringent fiber loop mirror with an output port probe are proposed. The two configurations used two couplers spliced between them with unbalanced arms and one output port is used as the probe sensor. The difference between them is that the section length of high-birefringent fiber is located between the two couplers (first configuration) or spliced in the output port probe (second configuration). The first new configuration is studied as an optical refractometer and the second configuration is analyzed when the strain and temperature are applied.
