Abstract

A hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber polarization controller was made by applying lateral pressures to three segments along the fiber. The applied lateral pressures result in variable birefringence along the fiber, which modifies the state of the polarization. This approach may be applicable to a hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber with little or no inherent birefringence.
