Paper Abstract

Compact samples of quarter wave plate have been fabricated respectively by cutting holey birefringent fiber and conventional birefringent fiber into different length of short sections. The temperature instability and wavelength sensitivity of these samples are analyzed and measured. The influence of fiber length and fiber prototype on the retardation variation is compared. The retardation deviation almost linearly increases with the fiber length of samples. Compared with the sample made of conventional birefringent fiber, the temperature stability of the sample made of holey birefringent fiber is greatly improved by one order, but the wavelength bandwidth needs to be further expanded by optimizing the holey cladding structure.
