In this paper, polarization properties of spun fibers with millimeter spin periods and certain intrinsic birefringence are investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Polarization evolution and modal coupling in spun fibers are studied by using the Jones vector method, and fiber polarization-mode dispersion is examined by using the Jones matrix eigenanalysis method. Theoretical results are in good agreement with the measured results. Some potential applications of these spun fibers for optical communications and fiber sensors as well as the related requirements are discussed.
