The polarization characteristics of 'single' mode optical fibers have been the subject of several publications . An understanding of the polarization sensitivity of such fibers is important in assessing the applicability of polarization dependent optical circuitry . An additional implication of the polarization sensitivity is the introduction of delay distortion in 'single' mode fibers.
