Abstract

A rigorous theoretical analysis has been presented of the stress birefringence Bs and the polarization dispersion Ds in single-polarization fibers. Both Bs and Ds vary considerably in dependence on normalized frequency v, and the v-value dependence of Bs and Ds is strongly affected by the anisotropic stress distribution in the fiber. It is shown that the experimental results agree well with the calculated ones.
