Paper Abstract

We compare, thanks to a Sagnac interferometer, the phase sensitivity to strain of different microstructured optical silica fibers (MSF) that we design and fabricate. Our results show that when a same elongation is applied to different MSF, the induced phase change is equal or lower than the one obtained for a standard fiber, showing no advantage on this parameter for sensing applications.
