Design of helical-core circularly birefringent fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Circularly birefringent fibers have several important potential applications in coherent detection schemes and as the sensing fiber in electric-current monitors1 and magnetic-field detectors. Recently we reported2 a novel fiber based on the rotation of the polarization state which occurs when light is constrained to follow a helical path. Fibers fabricated with helical cores have already exhibited circular birefringence, which is an order of magnitude higher than has been obtained previously by twisting the fiber.
