Paper Abstract

An all-fiber polarization transformer made of variably twisted holey birefringence fiber is proposed to decrease the temperature instability. After reviewing the beat length (or modal birefringence) variation of holey birefringence fiber with temperature and wavelength, the model for simulating the polarization transforming ability of the variably spun or twisted birefringence fiber is set up based on the mode-couple equation with variable coupled coefficients. Compared with the conventional polarization transformer made of variably spun stress birefringence fiber, the temperature instability from -20°C to +80°C and wavelength sensitivity from 1200nm to 1600nm of their polarization transforming performance are simulated and discussed.
