Abstract
We describe a simple, fast, and accurate technique for the angular alignment of a polarization-maintaining monomode optical fiber. The method uses simple mechanical supports and is based on the detection of the ellipticity of the light polarization at the fiber output, with the help of a simple rotating polarizer, a photodetector, and an oscilloscope.
