Paper Abstract

All-fiber polarization splitting was demonstrated using the stress release created by side polishing in stress-induced high birefringence fibers. This technique provides a very low loss (less than 0. 1 dB) and a broad wavelength range of operation (100 nm around 1500 nm). We report here about the detailled characteristics of the component and we present statistics about the 50 polarization splitting couplers that we have manufactured so far. We also describe typical applications of such a device.
