Varnham, M.P., Payne, D.N. and Love, J.D. (1984) Fundamental limits to the transmission of linearly-polarised light by birefringent optical fibres. Electronics Letters, 20, (1), 55-56. (doi:10.1049/el:19840038).

Experimental results are presented which show that the fundamental mode in highly birefringent fibres is not plane-polarised, as is normally assumed, but has significant orthogonal field components. These components limit the maximum measurable polarisation intensity extinction ratio to ~40 dB. Implications for polarisation measurements and fibre gyros are outlined.
