      Accurate Strain Sensing Based On Super-Mode Interference In Strongly Coupled Multi-Core Optical Fibres 

      Villatoro Bernardo, Agustín Joel; Arrizabalaga Uriarte, Oskar; Durana Apaolaza, Gaizka; Antonio-Lopez, Enrique; Zubia Zaballa, Joseba Andoni; Schülzgen, Axel; Amezcua-Correa, Rodrigo (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-06-30)
      We report on the use of a multi-core fibre (MCF) comprising strongly-coupled cores for accurate strain sensing. Our MCF is designed to mode match a standard single mode optical fibre. This allows us to fabricate simple MCF ...

      Miniature interferometric humidity sensor based on an off-center polymer cap onto optical fiber facet 

      Arrizabalaga Uriarte, Oskar; Velasco, Javier; Zubia Zaballa, Joseba Andoni; Sáez de Ocáriz, Idurre; Villatoro Bernardo, Agustín Joel (Elsevier, 2019-06-17)
      In this work, we propose an interferometric humidity sensor based on a polymer micro-cap bonded off-center on the polished end of a standard single mode fiber (SMF). In our sensor, the sensitive part is the micro-cap. In ...
