Abstract

We have analyzed and calculated the temperature and strain sensitivities of a high-birefringence double-clad elliptical fiber. We propose a method to minimize these sensitivities without increasing the fiber size or weight; this is achieved by selecting suitable fiber parameters—core ellipticity, refractive index difference, and thickness of the inner cladding. In addition, we discuss the design of temperature- or strain-insensitive fibers which may be used in polarimetric strain or temperature sensors. This method may also be used to minimize or enhance other external effects.
