Abstract
We report on the fabrication f comb filters which operate on the principle of linear polarization rotation through the twisting of the birefringent axes of photosensitive elliptical-core fibers by UV radiation. The polarization coupling spectrum of these filters consist of a series of narrow resonances which are roughly equally spaced in frequency and which extend over the entire single-mode frequency range of the fiber. Some applications of these structures are also discussed.
