Abstract
Sensitivity of optical fibers to the temperature, longitudinal strain or pressure, is a very important feature in many applications, such as sensors or telecommunication. The most common way to modify (depending on application - either mitigate or strengthen,) this sensitivity is changing the fiber material properties by appropriate glass doping or by employing appropriate microstructure in the fiber. In some cases the precise adjustment of a doping level and sophisticated design of air-holes arrangement is needed to obtain required features of the fiber. In this paper, for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, we report the investigation of the mode area and geometry influence on the fiber temperature and mechanical sensitivities. To do so, we engaged a dedicated all-fiber interferometer which enables the measurement of the temperature and longitudinal strain sensitivities of different fiber types, including conventional and microstructured fibers with different core diameters.
