Single-polarisation operation of highly birefringent bow-tie fibres

Varnham, M.P., Payne, D.N., Birch, R.D. and Tarbox, E.J. (1983) Single-polarisation operation of highly birefringent bow-tie fibres Electronics Letters, 19, (7), pp. 246-247. (doi:10.1049/el:19830169).

Record type: Article


Experimental results show that bow-tie fibres with high levels of stress-induced birefringence can be operated such that they support only a single linearly polarised mode. Under these conditions the loss of the fibre is 5 dB/km for the guided mode and 55 dB/km for the suppressed mode. For short-length operation as a polariser, extinction ratios as high as 50 dB/m have been obtained.
