Abstract

Use of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) in the field of sensing is relatively new. We propose the application of a PCF for pressure sensing. The fiber analyzed is a polarization-maintaining PCF that has negligible sensitivity to temperature, making it an ideal candidate for pressure sensing in harsh environments. On the basis of theoretical and experimental analysis, PCF is proposed to be applied as a temperature-compensated pressure sensor. Detailed theoretical analysis and the experiment carried out are described to show the concept of the sensor.
