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). 7): (1) Linear polarization state. 4(a). 10) If E0 y = 0 ( E0 x = 0), the linear state is horizontal (vertical). (2) Circular polarization state.

20 Some specialty fibers: (a) a high birefringence fiber; (b) erbium-doped fiber amplifier; and (c) a microstructured/photonic bandgap fiber (also known as a holey fiber). The black in the drawing represents solid glass, while the holes are filled with air (or other gas or liquid materials for sensing purposes). l Holey fibers (also called microstructured and photonic crystal fibers) – Numerous degrees of freedom have become available to fiber designers with the introduction of microstructured fibers [33] (Fig.

The state of polarization is indeed the shape drawn by the tip of the electric field vector as a function of time at a given location. If the light source emits a monochromatic wave (a single frequency), the light is fully polarized. However, in many cases it is not possible to clearly define a polarization state for an optical wave: the electric field vector can randomly vary in the transverse plane and the tip does not describe a well defined pattern. In these cases, the light is said to be unpolarized.
