Abstract

Variations in the TM-like polarization transmission characteristics and polarization extinction ratio of surface-plasma-wave fiber-optic polarizers owing to variations in the depth of polishing and the metal film thickness are presented. The two effects have been isolated in carefully designed experiments and studied separately.
