Strain and temperature sensitivity of a single mode polymer optical fiber


We have measured the optical phase sensitivity of fiber based on poly(methyl methacrylate) under near-single-mode conditions at 632.8 nm wavelength. The elongation sensitivity is 131±3×105 rad m-1 and the temperature sensitivity is -212±26 rad m-1 K-1. These values are somewhat larger than those for silica fiber and are consistent with the values expected on the basis of the bulk polymer properties.
