Paper Abstract

The possibilities of controlling and changing the state of polarization (SOP) as well as the degree of polarization (DOP) in an optical fiber taper are described in this paper. The in-line polarization analyzer POD-101A and Pola ViewTM software have been used for above polarization parameters investigation. In ours analyze we used a few kinds of optical fiber like: singlemode, multimode and photonic crystal ones. All of them were tapered in two different method to obtain different diameter and length of a waist. Diameter of taper waist was changing from 125 um to about 50 um for total taper length up to 100 mm. Polarization parameters was measured for wavelength 1310 nm. Set-up for manufacturing taper and software for measuring polarization also allows to produce optical fiber couplers and measured changes on their outputs.
