Abstract

A compact fiber polarizer is demonstrated by the filling of selected air holes of a hollow-core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with a liquid. The liquid-filling results in an asymmetric waveguide structure, leading to a large polarization dependent loss. A 6mm long ethanol-filled PCF exhibits a polarization extinction ratio of 18dB over a wavelength range from 1480nm to 1600nm.
