Paper Abstract

In order to cut short the size of fiber loop mirror (FLM) sensor and eliminate the environmental temperature influence on it, polarization-maintaining photonic crystal fiber (PM-PCF) is used in the sensor structure and introduced in this paper. Mathematical model of external pressure and birefringence is established and shifts of FLM transmission spectrum with different pressures are simulated. The long period fiber gating (LPG) acts as a linear optical wavelength filter which transformed wavelength shifts to optical power, thus sensitivity of system was improved due to the demodulation result of difference of two adjacent peaks of transmission.
