Abstract: Paper reports intensity modulated pressure sensor using microbending in the optical fiber embedded in the structural material. Pressure induced microbends have been created in silica clad graded index multimode optical fiber 50mm, plastic clad PCS200 and plastic clad PCS600 optical fibers embedded in the sample of araldite matrix. The samples have been tested separately with random microbending and periodic microbending of spatial periodicity Λ=5mm under high pressure cyclic loading conditions. The maximum pressure measured with PCS600 is 3.0 MPa, with PCS200 the maximum pressure measured is 1.8 MPa and that with silica clad 50mm maximum pressure measured is 1.6 MPa. The results with PCS600 optical fiber have been found to be linear and most reliable.
