Abstract
Techniques are being investigated to spatially weight the strain sensitivity of a two-mode fiber strain sensor by mechanically altering the shape of the fiber along its length. The goal of this process is to obtain fibers that will be single-mode (V < 2.4) over a well-defined sensing length and dual-mode (2.4 < V < 3.8) over the remaining section of fiber. The single- mode section will be relatively insensitive to applied strain, while the dual-mode section will detect a distributed strain field associated with structural vibration mode shapes. The integrated strain will be over the two-mode section of the fiber, which will change with the changing wavelength of the interrogation beam.
