Paper Abstract

We successfully placed a metal strip along the core of an optical fiber, see Fig. 1. These devices can be used as polarizers. Light polarized parallel to the metal strip is absorbed while light polarized perpendicular to the metal strip is absorbed less. Potentially large ratios of transmitted to absorbed light can be achieved in relatively short pieces of fiber. The Metal Strip Polarizing Fibers (MSPFs) are typically about 5 mm long. We report both on the fabrication process and some preliminary test.
