Abstract

We have measured the optical phase sensitivity of fiber based on poly(methyl methacrylate) under near-single-mode conditions at 632.8 nm wavelength. The elongation sensitivity is 131 ± 3 × 10 5 rad m 1 and the temperature sensitivity is 212 ± 26 rad m 1 K 1 . These values are somewhat larger than those for silica fiber and are consistent with the values expected on the basis of the bulk polymer properties.
