Birefringent filters, analogous to bulk-optic Solc filters, have been constructed from linearly birefringent optical fiber. Controlled twisting of portions of the fiber is used to rotate the polarization azimuth between retarder elements, and allows the devices to be made from continuous lengths of fiber. Filters having up to four elements have been made and evaluated, and a passband width of 10 nm has been demonstrated for a four-element filter.
