Paper Abstract

A novel fiber phase retarder (FPR) used in the electrical field meter is reported. The measuring precision of total installation is up to (lambda) /300. The (lambda) /4 wave-plane is achieved by grinding the fiber into a suitable length, which is determined by the phase retard measuring. FPR is accomplished with a precision of (lambda) /100. The average error is about (lambda) /900. As the high birefringence fibers are perfected, the FPR will be a novel optical component with many potential applications.
