Fabrication and characterisation of circularly birefringent helical fibres

Birch, R.D. (1987) Fabrication and characterisation of circularly birefringent helical fibres Electronics Letters, 23, (1), pp. 50-52. (doi:10.1049/el:19870037).

Record type: Article


A technique for fabricating helical-core circularly birefringent fibres is reported. Extremely high levels of circular birefringence are achieved (B = 2.1 x 10^-4 at 633nm). Because of its unique structure, this fibre remains single-mode up to V values of 25.
