Paper Abstract

An induced redistribution of modal power among guided modes was investigated experimentally and theoretically. This technique can be successfully applied to a variety of novel fiber optic devices: sensors, switches and modulators, resulting in improved performance and unique characteristics. The sensors employing this technique were found to be inherently more sensitive than other intensity type sensors and can be used to sense various phenomena, such as pressure, vibration and temperature.
