Review Paper on Digital Optical Fiber, Cable and Sensors: Design Approach on Different Optical Fiber Mode

Iram Khan, Ravindra Singh Chauhan


Now a days Optical Fiber are widely used in many application with different fiber mode are employed such as Single Mode Fiber (SM) and Multimode Fiber (MM) structure. To realization or implementation of temperature sensors in which we used Multimode Fiber section using a quasi-two mode fiber. The SMS structure can be analyzed as an interferometer, as we known the mode of Multimode fiber section have different phase velocities and have an interface pattern at Multimode–Single Mode join or junction which is dependent with different phase shift developed, in the Multimode section. This, in turns, changes the power value which is going to couple into the Single Mode section at the end of receiver. This research is also having an objective to find tradeoff between the optical sensor and cost of sensor. Indeed using non-conventional optical fibers are acceptable for the enhanced performance and low cost.
