    This paper will detail novel enabling fiber optic sensors based on the use of the photonic structures embedded in the core of the fiber. We will start by briefly reviewing fiber optics used as sensors for mechanical deformations, and introducing photonic crystals characteristics. Afterwards we will show that embedding photonic crystal structures into standard monomode fiber optics allows for highly sensitive detection of mechanical deformations. Finally, we will show simulation results using EMExporer which support our claim that embedded photonic crystals can sense very small mechanical deformations.
