The focus is on the differential strain and temperature sensitivities between the cladding mode resonances of an nth grating order and those of the (n - i)th orders (with i = 1 - n), which are collocated in the same wavelength range. Whereas the Bragg mode exhibits an axial strain sensitivity of 1.2 pm/µε, we experimentally show that the strain sensitivity of ultrahigh-order cladding modes is negative and at -1.99 pm/µe in the same spectral window. Using a finite element mode solver, the modal refractive index value is computed to be well below 1, thus confirming that these modes, in reality, are leaky modes.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/11870||ISSN:||01469592||Rights:||© 2018 Optical Society of America.||Type:||Article|
