The characteristics of the use of a hollow-core splice scheme for macrobend measurements are discussed both theoretically and experimentally. A perturbation theory for the modes of a bent hollow-core fiber and its loss characterization are developed so as to better understand the characteristics of the scheme. The maximal detection range of fabricated sensors with the proposed scheme is experimentally determined to be as large as a few hundred millimeters relative to the radius of curvature. In addition, the numerical estimation of the loss characteristics using the scheme shows modal trends which are in good agreement with experimental data.
