Polarimetric strain gauges using high birefringence fibre

Varnham, M.P., Barlow, A.J., Payne, D.N. and Okamoto, K. (1983) Polarimetric strain gauges using high birefringence fibre Electronics Letters, 19, (17), pp. 699-700. (doi:10.1049/el:19830476).

Record type: Article


When a highly-birefringent fibre is stretched, the birefringence changes. The phenomenon is shown to result from a difference in Poisson's ratio of the two glasses from which the fibre is constructed. Experimental verification is given and a simple polarimetric strain gauge made from bow-tie fibre is demonstrated.
