Abstract

The Mueller matrices associated to six homemade special index-guiding microstructured fibers are determined at a transmission wavelength of 1550 nm. Diattenuation, polarizance, and polarization-dependent loss, among other polarimetric parameters, are determined from the Mueller matrix associated to a 2 m length of each fiber studied here. Results show that the fiber fabrication parameters have a clear effect on the output degree of polarization (DoP), providing an inverse relationship between the DoP output and the relative hole diameter, the d/Λ value.
