Paper Abstract

A birefringence compensation method for a mechanically induced tunable long period holey fiber grating is proposed. With this method the tunable long period holey fiber grating becomes polarization-insensitive. A device with such characteristics is desirable in applications where filter tunability is used to reject (or simply attenuate) non desired optical bands. Characterizations with polarized and nonpolarized light are presented and the potential applications are discussed as well.
