Although polymer optical fiber (POF) tapers with high flexibility have been used to measure the refractive indices (RIs) of liquids, their fabrication have caused some inconvenience including the need to use external heat sources or chemicals. Here, as an alternative, we develop a simple, secure, and low-cost method of measuring RIs of liquids using V-shaped bent POFs. When the bending angle is 120° (experimentally optimized), with increasing RI, the transmitted power increases almost linearly with a dependence coefficient of approximately 210 dB/RI unit.
