Summary: 
Phase performance in a fiber optic temperature sensor using a mode-division multiplex is studied. The phase shift due to the temperature change of a multimode graded-index optical fiber is analyzed. The intensity fluctuation by the interference of two modes is estimated in computer simulation.
