Paper Abstract

Polarization retaining single-mode fibers are being developed using the stress-rod approach. Design parameter values have been varied to optimize birefringence, polarization holding, and low attenuation rates. Test configurations have been developed to characterize the fibers under simulated deployment bending conditions. The results show that good polarization and attenuation properties can be maintained for long lengths of fibers wound into compact sensor configurations.
