Polarization-Maintaining Fiber Optic Couplers
  • coupler 1. In color development, the chemical that combines with certain by-products of the development procedure to form a dye. 2. Device for distributing optical power among two or more ports. 3. Device for coupling optical power between a waveguide and a...
  • polarization With respect to light radiation, the restriction of the vibrations of the magnetic or electric field vector to a single plane. In a beam of electromagnetic radiation, the polarization direction is the direction of the electric field vector (with no...
  • fiber optics The use of thin flexible glass or plastic fibers as wave guides – or ‘light pipes’— to channel light from one location to another. Fiber optics is based off of the principle of total internal reflection (TIR). Light enters...
  • polarization-preserving fiber (PPF) Single-mode fiber that preserves the plane of polarization of the light launched into it as the beam propagates through its length. Also called polarization-maintaining fiber. The polarization is maintained by introducing asymmetry in the fiber...
