A new type of fiber Fabry-Perot interferometer buried in a fiber connector housing was proposed. The transmission spectra revealed double peaks due to birefringence in the fiber and the peak separation showed a temperature dependence as large as -7. 7 MHz/deg, which was 2 orders of magnitude larger than that estimated from the thermal characteristics of its component materials.
