Update on polarization-maintaining fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


There is widespread interest in fibers which can hold a given state of polarization despite bends, kinks, and environmental changes. Applications at present are primarily in fiber sensors with the fiber gyroscope1 the most immediate. However, the attainment2 of low loss with good polarization holding in lengths up to 8 km is an indication of the potential for coherent communication systems.
