Paper Abstract

A theoretical model is developed of ring resonators made from polarization preserving and polarizing fiber. The model predicts significant output variation with temperature, as a result of small amounts of polarization crosstalk in the coupler. It also allows determination of the polarizing fiber attenuation necessary for eliminating the output variation. Finally, a resonator configuration made from polarization preserving fiber is proposed, that shows greatly improved temperature stability without the use of polarizers.
