Paper Abstract

A mechanical bent of an optical fiber induces perturbations of geometrical and material fiber parameters. Due to these factors there arise both wave field distortions and variations of a mode propagation constant. In the given paper, polarization corrections to propagation constants are shown to be mean values of the spin-orbit operator of a singular beam in a bent optical fiber. The propagation process of eigen modes in those fibers is analyzed.
