Abstract

A novel fiber sensor based on the interference of the exact constituent modes of the LP11 fiber mode of a solitary standard-communication-grade optical fiber is demonstrated. The coupling of the constituent modes due to birefringence is shown to produce a linear rotation of the lobes at the fiber output. A novel passive demodulation scheme is used to produce signals in quadrature. A simple demonstration of its application to torsional vibration is presented.
