Performance of bow-tie polarising fibres

Varnham, M.P., Payne, D.N., Birch, R.D. and Tarbox, E.J., (1983) Performance of bow-tie polarising fibres Melchior, H. and Sollberger, A. (eds.) In Proceedings of the 9th European Conference on Optical Communication. Elsevier., pp. 57-59.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Differential bending loss between the two polarised modes is shown to be a necessary condition for truly single-polarisation operation in highly-birefringent fibres. The very high polarisation extinction ratios obtainable make the fibre ideally suited to many applications requiring transmission of polarised light
