Abstract

In this paper, we describe the fabrication process and the characteristics of polarization maintaining photonic crystal fibers (PM-PCFs). The PM-PCF is fabricated by stack-and-draw method, i.e., stacking silica capillary tubes (making a PM-PCF preform) and drawing to optical fiber. Firstly, a PM-PCF preform is formed by stacking two kinds of capillary tubes around a solid silica rod and jacketing these stacked tubes with an outer silica tube (out-jacket tube). Later, the desired preform is drawn to a fiber in a high temperature drawing tower. We also compare the polarization properties such as polarization dependent loss, birefringence, and differential group delay of the fabricated PM-PCF with those of the conventional PANDA PM fiber.
