Abstract
High birefringence, polarization retaining single-mode optical waveguides have been developed for applications requiring stable performance when the fiber is coiled. Recent designs employing high-expansion aluminum-doped stress rods have demonstrated polarization holding parameters better than 6.0 x 10-6m-1 with little degradation of h-parameter or attenuation down to 2 cm diameter coil configurations.
