Abstract

A fiber full-polarization-state controller made by applying variable axial strains to both ends of a section of properly central-twisted high linearly birefringent fiber is proposed and thoroughly studied. The equations for polarization control are extremely simple. Experimental results are in good agreement with theoretical predictions.
