Fabrication of single-mode fibres exhibiting extremely low polarisation birefringence

Norman, S.R., Payne, D.N., Adams, M.J. and Smith, A.M. (1979) Fabrication of single-mode fibres exhibiting extremely low polarisation birefringence Electronics Letters, 15, (11), pp. 309-311. (doi:10.1049/el:19790219).

Record type: Article


An investigation of the relative effects of core ellipticity and stress-induced birefringence on fibre polarisation properties described. It is found that a reduction in core stress levels necessary to obtain low-birefringence fibres. A fibre having retardation of only 2.6°/m is reported.
