Paper Abstract

The manufacture and characterisation of D shaped single mode optical fibres is described. Such fibres are found to have a strong dependence of cut off wavelength upon polarisation, yet have low intrinsic birefringence. The use of the fibres to make pressure and temperature sensors is described, and is compared to similar sensors made using standard circular fibres.
