Paper Abstract

High - birefringent optical fiber with elliptical core was placed inside a high pressure and temperature controlled measuring chamber equipped with special fiber optic leadthrough system. The experiments were carried out in University of Quebec at Hull Optoelectronics Laboratory by using Harwood DWT-35 dead weight tester as a pressure standard up to 100MPa. Linearly polarised light was injected into fiber. Then changes in polarisation state of light passed through the fiber in term of hydrostatic pressure and temperature variation were filvestigated. Birefringence variations were determined by measurements of changes in beat length ofthe siagle mode elliptical core fiber. The fiber was prepared in laboratories of Maria Curie University at Lublin. Based on the results obtained we could determined hydrostatic pressure of compensation of intrinsic stress i.e. ,the pressure for which birefringence is diminished to zero.
