Paper Abstract

Fiber wave plates are usually used for the transformation of polarization state in fiber sensing systems. Environment temperature and operating wavelength may influence the beat length of the birefringence fiber, inducing the instability of fiber wave plates on polarization transforming. As for the variable-spun fiber wave plate with different structure parameters (fiber length, spun rate profile and maximum spun rate), this paper describe the effect of beat length on the equivalent phase retardation. The proper range of the beat length for the qualified fiber wave plate is calculated by the differential phase retarder cascade model. The results are of referential value to the design, fabrication and evaluation of the variable-spun fiber wave plate.
