Research Related to Sensor Based Application of Photonic Crystal Fiber
Photonic crystal fiber signifies the new form of fiber optics that provides a variety of enhanced features over the
classic optical fiber. These fibers possess the combined properties of the photonic crystal and the optical fiber which make
them suitable for the sensing applications. An overview of photonic crystal fiber as sensor is presented in this paper based on
their guiding mechanism and interferometry techniques used for their applications. Various sensors have been developed so
far and more are expected build up based on their remarkable characteristics.
