Paper Abstract

We present an experimental study of light polarization on solid core microstructured optical fibers type (Large Mode Area) LMA-16, LMA-20 and LMA-25. These fibers were partially filled with one micron diameter polyethylene spheres or carbon nanotubes diluted in distilled H2O by capillarity. Polarization characterization was realized on these Photonic Crystal fibers with air filled holes and partially particle filled holes using a He-Ne 633nm central wavelength laser at 10mW. The achieved results were compared using graphical data of every test collected at different exposition dates where the fiber was exposed to particle sedimentation. Results depicted that short time sedimentation of these particles does not change the light polarization leaving from the fiber except for the phase of the beam. On the other hand, longer time particle exposition visibly changes the light phase measured at the end of the photonic crystal fiber with repeatable results.
