Abstract

We report on experimental studies of polarimetric sensitivity to temperature and hydrostatic pressure in two highly birefringent index guided photonic crystal fibers. Our results confirm earlier theoretical predictions indicating that polarimetric sensitivity to temperature in highly birefringent PCF with specific constriction can be very low. Proper choice of constructional parameters of the PCF can lead to complete temperature desensitization. On the other hand, relatively high polarimetric sensitivity to hydrostatic pressure in the analyzed structures make them good candidates for applications as active elements in hydrostatic pressure sensors.
