Abstract

Polarization-maintaining optical fiber (PMF), which maintains a state of polarization over a long length, has many applications from coherent transmission systems to fiber-optic sensors. Especially, in a long coherent transmission system, it is necessary that a PMF have low loss and low dispersion in the 1.55-µm wavelength region.1
