A comparison is made between various approximations for the phase delay between orthogonally polarised modes in elliptical optical fibres. A more accurate analysis is presented which gives a lower value for the birefringence produced by a given ellipticity. The effect on fibre bandwidth is shown to be small compared with that resulting from stress birefringence.
