The use of a highly elliptical core two-mode fiber for simultaneous measurement of pressure (radial pressure or hydrostatic pressure) and temperature is presented. The sources of errors are discussed. Expressions are developed to calculate the cross sensitivities. From the numerical examples, some useful conclusions are given.
