In this paper we present the working principle, fabrication and operation of a high performance, but low-cost, polarimetric pressure sensor using standard single-mode fibers. The measurement system exploits the coupling between the two orthogonally polarized fundamental modes in a standard fiber and is based on the direct evaluation of the power variation along a predefined linear polarization. The transducer is made by few loops of fiber sandwiched between two plates and its sensitivity can be tailored by changing the number of loops and position.

Abstract

In this paper we present the working principle, fabrication and operation of a high performance, but low-cost, polarimetric pressure sensor using standard single-mode fibers. The measurement system exploits the coupling between the two orthogonally polarized fundamental modes in a standard fiber and is based on the direct evaluation of the power variation along a predefined linear polarization. The transducer is made by few loops of fiber sandwiched between two plates and its sensitivity can be tailored by changing the number of loops and position.
