Paper Abstract

Light polarising effects in "bow-tie" birefringent fibre are reviewed. This has led to the development of compact robust polariser devices as well as low-loss fibres which polarise the transmitted light c-Ter long distances. These components find immediate application in fibre sensors such as cn,, fibre gyroscope, where up to 62dB of polarisation extinction with less than 1dB insertion loss is typical for a fibre polariser.
