Optimisation of polymer optical fibre based interferometric sensors


A numerical model for studying the performance of polymer optical fibre-based interferometric sensors is presented. The strain sensitivity of Fabry-Perot and two-beam interferometric sensors is investigated by varying the physical and optical properties corresponding to frequently used wavelengths. The developed model was used to identify the regimes in which these devices offer enhanced performance over their silica counterparts when used for stress sensing. © (2015) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
