Abstract

Polarization maintaining fiber are used in many kinds of optical sensors. Among these applications, the application to fiber optical gyroscopes (FOGs) is of the greatest interest. Polarization maintaining fibers with small coating diameter suitable for FOGs were designed and fabricated. Their characteristics were fairly good even at coiled condition.
