Paper Abstract

The exact field solution of a step index profile fiber was used to determine the injection efficiency of a thin-film distribution of polarized sources located in the cladding of an optical fiber. Previous results for random source orientation were confirmed. It was found that the behavior of the power efficiency, Peff, of a polarized distribution of sources is similar to the behavior of a fiber with sources with random orientation. However, it was found that for sources polarized in either the x or y direction, Peff is more efficient.
