The reasons for choosing this structure are as follows: core-offset splicing SMF and PCF can improve optical path difference, which is conducive to the formation of the M-Z interference; excessive splicing PCF and SMF can cause the light in core and clad interference and effectively expand the measurement range of strain; corroding the optical fiber between A and B can increase evanescent field, which makes the corroded fiber optic sensor more sensitive.
