Abstract

Optical fibers composed of highly birefringent material are studied. One of the two fundamental modes can be made leaky when the birefringence is sufficiently large. This suggests a novel single-mode, single-polarization fiber design that can be realized by stress-induced birefringence. The leakage rate is calculated by a perturbation method, which accounts for degeneracy between a bound mode and a packet of radiation modes.
