Polarization-Maintaining Fiber Optic Fibers
  • 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...
  • birefringence The separation of a light beam, as it penetrates a doubly refracting object, into two diverging beams, commonly known as ordinary and extraordinary beams.  
  • stress birefringence Birefringence of materials that is induced or altered by stress fields.
