Abstract

We report the measurement of bending-induced birefringence in the presence of large intrinsic birefringence in a hollow-core photonic crystal fiber (HC-PCF). The fast axis of bending-induced birefringence was found to be normal to the bending plane, in contrast to the conventional fiber case. The dependence of the induced birefringence on the bending radius was also different from the typical inverse square law. Possibilities and design criteria for polarization controllers using bending-induced birefringence in HC-PCFs are presented.
