In-line fiber-polarization-rocking rotator and filter.

Abstract

An in-line polarization rotator has been built into a single-mode birefringent fiber. The rotator utilizes periodic twists of the fiber's principal axes, which were formed by rocking the preform as the fiber was drawn. The polarization conversion between the principal axes is wavelength dependent, with a bandwidth inversely proportional to the number of twist periods. The bandwidth of the present rotator was 4.8 nm for 100% conversion in a fiber length of 170 cm.
