In recent years optical fiber has been used in sensing application such as temperature, vibration, strain and acoustics [1], Optical fiber sensor has been improved to measure another various physical properties, like light intensity, liquid level, radiation, chemical changes, and refractive index [2].It is designed to collect data by an optical fiber; the mesurand alters a specific physical property and causes a change in the characteristics of transmitted light along the optical fiber [3].
