Paper Abstract

We have fabricated and tested fibers having a thin AlCu alloy film strip covering a 15 degree of arc along the core cladding boundary. The fabrication of these fibers had a dual purpose. In order for the metal film to deform smoothly during the fiber pulling process from a coating on the 1 mm diameter core rod in the preform to a coating of the 10 micrometer core in the fiber the viscosity of the metal must be less than the viscosity of the surrounding glass. The viscosity of the AlCu film can be conveniently changed by varying the composition of the alloy. These fibers can, eventually, be used as polarizers. Light polarized parallel to the metal strip is absorbed more than light polarized perpendicular to the strip. We tested both the spectral and polarization transmission properties of these fibers.
