Paper Abstract

Geometrical and stress-induced birefringence of polarization maintaining single-mode fibers with a layered periodically stepped core were studied. The propagation constants of TE and TM modes and resulting geometrical birefringence were computed for both planar and cylindrical layered structures. Maximal birefringence in the limit case of an infinite number of layers and infinite wavelength was evaluated analytically. The stress-induced birefringence for such structures was computed using the boundary element method.
