Title: Phase delay of polarisation modes in elastically twisted spun fibres

Abstract

The evolution of the phase delay between linearly polarised orthogonal modes in a spun fibre elastically twisted around its axis has been studied experimentally and theoretically using a model for a helical structure of the built-in linear birefringence axes. The phase delay is a sinusoidal function of elastic twist angle, with an amplitude and period dependent on fibre parameters: spin pitch and built-in linear birefringence beat length. It is shown that, at a known spin pitch, phase delay versus elastic twist angle data can be used to determine the beat length of built-in linear birefringence in the range 0.01 to 100 mm. The theoretical analysis results are supported by experimental data for conventional and microstructured spun fibres. (fibre optics)
