Characterisation of Polarisation Maintaining Fibre-Optic Components
The behaviour of the optical polarisation in fibre-based elements and the associated characterisation methods are reviewed. The relevant figures of merit are defined and analysed in relation to different measurement set-ups. Differences and similarities in the experimental results are considered and sources of discrepancies or misinterpretations clarified.
The orientation procedures of high-quality polarisation maintaining fibre elements and the evaluation of their polarisation performance according to the current international standards are explained.
