Abstract

A new type of Mach–Zehnder interferometer has been fabricated in an elliptical-core high-birefringence fiber. The directional couplers of a conventional fiber interferometer are replaced by two photoinduced polarization rocking filters written on the same fiber. The resonant wavelength of the interferometer was 787 nm, with an operational bandwidth of 18 nm. The device can be used in two different modes for temperature sensing.
