Abstract
A development status evaluation is presented for recently developed analytical and experimental methods for the characterization of inline fiber-optic polarizers and polarizing beam splitters that employ surface plasmon polaritons in thin metal films. Both standard and highly birefringent fiber devices are considered. Attention is given to the effect of birefringent-axis misalignment, which requires that devices on a polarization-maintaining fiber must be characterized by one or two coupling matrices for polarizers and beam splitters, respectively.
