Birefringence testing in single-mode fibres manufactured with controlled polarisation characteristics

Barlow, A.J. and Payne, D.N. (1981) Birefringence testing in single-mode fibres manufactured with controlled polarisation characteristics At IEE Colloquium on Test Equipment for Optical Fibre Communication, United Kingdom.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

Single-mode fibres with well-defined polarisation properties are required to interface to integrated-optical components and in fibre sensors and the Faraday current monitor. The development of fibres with closely controlled polarisation characteristics is critically dependent on the ability to accurately measure and interpret complex birefringence properties. A number of test methods for this purpose have been investigated and are described in this paper, together with an indication of the precautions necessary to minimise external effects.
