Directional bend sensor based on an asymmetric modification of the fiber cladding by femtosecond laser


A femtosecond laser was used to modify a part of the cladding of a standard LPG bend sensor. The device produced wavelength shifts depending upon the direction of bend, thus making a shape sensor.
