We have developed a fabrication technique for plastic optical fiber (POF) using nonlinear organic materials. The fabrication technique is the direct core solution injection into the hole of cladding preform formed by polymerization of cladding solution. The cladding solution was made of MMA, BBP, and BPO. The preform of fiber was drawn into fiber following polymerization of core solution in cladding preform. We used DR1 to control the refractive index of fiber and investigated the sensor characteristics. The sensitivity of fabricated fiber is about 0.11 W/°C in the temperature range from 20°C to 100°C.
