Abstract

We report on a transverse load sensor with enhanced sensitivity through the use of a birefringent interferometer based on a highly birefringent photonic crystal fiber (HB-PCF). The transverse load sensitivity can be enhanced by using a fabricated HB-PCF having larger air holes on its fast axis. The transverse load sensitivity was measured to be high: 2.17 nm / ( N / cm ) . The temperature-induced undesirable effects can be ignored because transmission outputs of our HB-PCF were stable with the change of the temperature. The sensing probe can be compact because of its high birefringence with the order of 10 3 and no bending loss.
