Fabrication of polarisation-maintaining fibres using gas-phase etching

Birch, R.D., Payne, D.N. and Varnham, M.P. (1982) Fabrication of polarisation-maintaining fibres using gas-phase etching Electronics Letters, 18, (24), pp. 1036-1038. (doi:10.1049/el:19820709).

Record type: Article


A new fabrication technique for the production of high-birefringence fibres is described. The process is shown to produce fibres with a cross-sectional geometry which is close to the optimum predicted by stress analysis. As a result, fibres with extremely short beat lengths (0.55 mm at a wavelength of 633 nm) have been produced.
