Different fiber-based sensing structures have been developed for torsion detection, such as long-period fiber gratings (LPFGs) based on screw-type distortion in the bare optical fiber [1], the engraving of angle-chirped LPFGs [2], helicoidal long-period fiber gratings (H-LPFGs) [3], twist tapers, and special fibers like the polarization-maintaining fibers (PANDA, Bow Tie) for their high linear birefringence [4].
This asymmetry creates the optical anisotropy effect that lead to linear dicroishm and linear birefringence effect in the magnetic fluid [11].
Erythrosomes exhibit linear dichroism as well as linear birefringence and occur in varied forms.
