Abstract
Elliptical polarization maintaining single mode fibers were fabricated with both round and conformal elliptical coating configurations in order to externally identify the fiber axes. These fibers were then level wound onto various diameter coils and tested for polarization holding ability (h parameter). The test results are reported and an analysis is made of the effect of coating configuration and axial alignment on the state of polarization (SOP).
