F. Supplementary Application Question

You have been tasked to characterise the tensile mechanical properties of a new type of optical fiber for qualification of a Fibos sensor product. Describe in one page or less how you would obtain the following mechanical properties of this fiber:

• Ultimate tensile strain limit
• Strain hysteresis
• Optical strain sensitivity

Assume that you have a budget of $2,500 and must have initial results within 4 weeks. Your proposed solution is for room temperature measurement only but should consider subsequent testing at elevated temperatures (1000°C). Sketches and diagrams are encouraged, if applicable.
