Abstract

Characterization of polymer optical fibers (POFs) in terms of dynamic behavior is important for many sensors applications for which this type of fibers offers big advantages. We report measurements of the Young’s modulus on microstructured and step index polymer optical fibers and their comparison with silica fiber for a frequency range up to 300 Hz. In this range a constant modulus has been measured, allowing the use of polymer fibers for applications like Bragg grating based accelerometers.
