Paper Abstract

Extremely bent optical fiber (U-optrode) is applicable as a sensing head, signal of which is govern by refractive index and light scattering properties of the surrounding medium. The presented contribution aims to shows that when covered with properly selected polymeric transducers, the reliable and fast thermometers covering different temperature ranges can be constructed suitable for, e.g., measurements in environments with high level of electric or magnetic disturbances. Obviously, the bare optrodes can be also used as sensitive analytic tools for collecting information about thermallyinduced changes of optical and micro-structural properties of polymers.
