Highly sensitive bend sensor based on Bragg grating in eccentric core polymer fiber


We report on an optical bend sensor based on a Bragg grating inscribed in an eccentric core polymer optical fiber. The device exhibits the strong fiber orientation dependence, the wide bend curvature range of ± 22.7 m-1 and high bend sensitivity of 63 pm/m-1.
