Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we measure the polarization state of various fibers with varying the bending factors. We also analyze the result of bending fiber with various bending numbers. The usage of fiber bending effect to achieve fiber-optical waveplate in the optical communication systems are reported. The results of our experiment have the similar characteristics as retarder and can be turned by varying the wrapping number. Our experimental contributions can help the design of future advance fiber-optic wave plates for a lot of polarization control applications.
