Paper Abstract

In the paper we present a new method of analysis of the optical fiber Lyot depolarizer based on application of an additional depolarization matrix in the MuellerStokes equation. As a result we found that the degree of depolarization of the light coming out of the Lyot depolarizer depends not only on length and birefringence of the highly birefringent (HB) fibers used as the Lyot depolarizer but also on coherence and polarization of the light coupled into the depolarizer.
