Abstract

The propagation of polarized light through a bottle coupler has been investigated experimentally. Relative phase shifts for orthogonally polarized modes and the strength of coupling between these modes have been determined. These results have been related to elements in the transfer matrix for the coupler. The effect of polarization on the sensitivity of an interferometric sensor with a fiber coupler as the output beam splitter has also been investigated.
