Abstract
A novel side-leakage PCF with high birefringence is designed and fabricated by introducing a linear side-leakage region into both sides of the elliptical Ge-doped core. A curvature sensor using the homemade side-leakage PCF based Sagnac interferometer is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. Experimental result shows that a high bending sensitivity of 10.798nm/m-1 can be achieved when the linear side-leakage region is in the vertical with the direction of curvature. With the measuring matrix obtained from sensor's sensitivity matrix by measuring the wavelength shifts of two dip in the transmission spectrum, this sensor can also realize simultaneous measurement of curvature and temperature.
