Paper Abstract

Use of optical fiber sensors and gyroscopes require a number of in-line components. One important device is a polarizing element. The design of a fiber polarizer using a biconical taper is reported. The model performances for the operating wavelength of 1.3 micrometers are characterized by an extinction ratio of 40 dB or more, with a loss of the desired polarization (throughput loss) of about 2 dB.
