—The method and the required installations for fabricating tapered long-period fiber gratings can be simpler than that of standard fiber Bragg gratings, and the fabrication process is faster. To our knowledge, the tapered long-period fiber grating pressure sensor is presented here for the first time. In this paper, the fabrication method for tapered(More)
An experimental study of the polarization properties of single-mode optical fibers of differential polarization-mode attenuation is presented. The output state of polarization was measured at various input polarization orientations and wavelengths. The transition from a two-polarization to a single-polarization regime of operation was investigated. Also,(More)
The sensitivity to hydrostatic pressure, temperature, and strain of elliptical-core, D-shaped, bow-tie highly birefringent fibers is experimentally investigated. Both polarimetric and polarization sensitive LP(01)-LP(11) intermodal interferometric responses are studied. The sensitivities are expressed in terms of the experimental parameters T(x,j)(More)
− We propose a simple all-fiber structure based on intermodal interference between a core and a cladding mode of an endlessly single-mode photonic crystal fiber section sandwiched between a lead-in and lead-out SMF-28 fiber. The sensitivities to strain, pressure and temperature are measured. The interferometer is compared to an interferometer based on LP(More)
