Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate a novel microstructure optical fiber designed for pressure measurement with ultrahigh sensitivity. The fiber has a cross-sectional structure of two-semicircle holes with a modal birefringence of ∼1×10-4 The demonstrated sensitivity of hydrostatic pressure is ∼44 nm/MPa, which is about 13 times higher than previously reported result.
