Paper Abstract

The main characteristics of polarization-maintaining single-mode fibers (PMSMF) were computed and measured for different fiber structures. The stress-induced linear birefringence profile was computed. The propagation constant and cutoff for each mode were determined numerically. An experimental setup for fiber beat-length measurement was developed. Group linear birefringence, modal coupling parameters, and dichroism have been achieved for fibers prepared at the Institute of Glass Chemistry and Ceramic Materials.
