A new all fibre, and low transmission loss, digital optical strain sensor is proposed. This sensor behaves as a Coaxial Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Special depressed cladding single-mode fibre DCF was tapered down to the micrometer scale presenting FSR in the nm range. The sensor is modelled to probe up to ± 0.2% strain when under expansive or compression stresses, returning 20 optical Power Transfer Turning Points (PTTP) at 1575 nm transmitted wavelength.
