Abstract : In some fiber sensors, temperature drift causes phase noise which degrades the sensor severely. A novel intrinsic technique is presented in which the thermal independency is built into the preform of polarimetric sensor fibers. Experiment shown that this technique offers zero temperature sensitivity over a much wider range of temperature than previously reported techniques.
