In this work, we report the results obtained during the photo-thermo-mechanical characterization of a PMMA-core plastic optical fiber (POF) through tensile tests. Simultaneous measurements of the received optical power and temperature variation during the deformation process are also reported, analyzing its viability as an intensity-based sensing system.
