Abstract

The temperature dependence of the birefringence in a suspended core fiber (SCF) has been experimentally analyzed by using a polarimetric setup. The used configuration consists of two linear polarizers and the SCF as birefringent medium. A theoretical study based on Jones matrices has been carried out to analyze the experimental observed behavior. For this, a polarimetric all-fiber configuration was used whose sensitivity depends on the wavelength variation with temperature. Results obtained show that it is strongly affected when the air holes of SCF are partially filled with ethanol.
