Paper Abstract

Several different coated fibres, representing both the step index and graded index groups, were tested for their sensitivity to bending using a mandrel wrap technique. Different sensor designs indicated that a grooved block arrangement was most suitable. A linear response over a large dynamic range was obtained by pretensioning the fibre in the sensor head.
