Paper Abstract

In a previous paper one described a sensor that worked by replacing a small region of the clad by a material possessing an index of refraction highly sensitive to temperature. The variation of the index of refraction of this material leads to losses that modulate the transmitted optical power bringing information about the temperature. In this paper one presents a theory for the explanation of the behavior of the above mentioned sensor.
