Photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) have special wave-guiding properties that cannot be achieved in conventional optical fibers. The properties of PCFs can be controlled via the geometry of their microstructured cladding. This opens up new opportunities for numerous applications in the areas of light transmission, nonlinear optics, fiber-optic components and sensors. In this paper, we overview the applications of PCF in photonic sensing.
