Birefringence in optical fibres with elliptical cross-section

Adams, M.J., Payne, D.N. and Ragdale, C.M. (1979) Birefringence in optical fibres with elliptical cross-section Electronics Letters, 15, (10), pp. 298-299. (doi:10.1049/el:19790212).

Record type: Article


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.
