Abstract

We have measured the optical phase sensitivity of fiber based on poly(methyl methacrylate) under near-single-mode conditions at 632.8nm wavelength. The elongation sensitivity is 131±3×105radm1 and the temperature sensitivity is 212±26radm1K1. These values are somewhat larger than those for silica fiber and are consistent with the values expected on the basis of the bulk polymer properties.
