Paper Abstract

We investigate polarization state evolution in the fundamental mode in a weakly guiding highly elliptic twisted optical fiber. On the basis of the scalar wave equation the analytical expression for the fundamental mode is obtained. Twisting-induced polarization corrections to the propagation constant are found. It is demonstrated that in some limiting case the rise of such corrections can be explained as a manifestation of topological Pancharatnam-Berry's phase.
