The response of single-mode fibres to time-varying thermal perturbations has been characterised by using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. It is shown that single-mode fibres offer the possibility of high-speed, high-sensitivity remote temperature sensing with a minimum disturbance of the thermal environment and the capability to operate in an electro-magnetically active environment. In addition, fibre temperature sensors can be configured to measure not only the specific temperature at any given point, but also offer the unique feature of extended temperature measurements over the length of a fibre segment in which the device optically integrates any thermally induced fluctuations.
