Paper Abstract

This communication deals with the experimental verification of the change of strain sensitivity of a polarimetric fiber optic sensor with temperature. Samples of bow-tie HB fiber were submitted to tensile tests by means of a mechanical testing machine at different temperatures. The experimental results confirm that the observed variations on the strain sensitivity can be correlated to the thermal sensitivity change by means of the expansion coefficient.
