Polarization Effects in Optical Fibers 33 The sign chosen for e depends on the direction of rotation. 8) is positive (negative) [2]. The parameter e therefore includes two pieces of information: the shape of the ellipse via the absolute value of x and the direction of rotation of the electric field vector tip via its sign. Two special cases of the general state of elliptical polarization are generated for specific values of the ellipticity e (±1 and 0).

2 dB/km at 1550 nm (see Fig. 11). 12, together with the nomenclature currently adopted of sub-divisions of this window. 18 dB/km@1550 nm, which is equivalent to a transmission of more than 66 % through a 10 km long optical fiber! 0001 dB/km [23]. While such low-loss fibers could connect continents without the need for optical amplification or electronic regeneration, they are simply not yet available. While progress has been made and low loss (<1 dB/km) mid-infrared fibers are being manufactured, the dominance of silica-based fibers for long-haul applications is yet to be shaken.

For such media, there exist two orthogonal axes so that light linearly polarized parallel to either of them will maintain its linear SOP as it propagates through the material. The directions which do not distort the linear polarizations are characteristic to the medium, and are called the material axes or eigenmodes (they are the x and y axes in our case). Unlike in the isotropic case, light which is linearly polarized along the x axis propagates with a phase velocity different than that of light linearly polarized in the y direction.
