Paper Abstract

A torsion experimental sensing setup based on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) with photonics crystal fiber is presented. The MZI was fabricated by fusion splicing a piece of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) between two segments of a single-mode fiber (SMF). Here, a spectral MZI fringe shifting is induced by applying torsion over the SMF-PCF-SMF. As a result a torsion sensitivity of 35.79 pm/ and a high visibility of 10 dB were achieved. Finally, it is shown that the sensing arrangement is compact and robust.
