Paper Abstract

Etched optical fiber is made of multimode optical fiber, whose cladding is single-surface etched or double-surface asymmetrically etched. Because the mode-volume mismatch and the lateral bending can cause a reduction of the transmitted light power, it can be used as a sensor to detect stress and strain in the structure of material. Throughout our experiments, two kinds of fiber are used. It is shown by the static response testing that the power loss increases linearly with the change of strain. In experiments of dynamic response, the maximum frequency of distortionless optical modulation can get up to 21 kHz. This simple method of optical modulation is useful in research of sensor and spatial light modulation.
