Abstract
In certain fiber optic sensors and gyroscopes using birefringent fibers, it is essential to precisely align the principal axes of the fibers used, when two fibers are spliced or connected. The proper alignment of the linearly polarized input light wave with the birefringence axis of a fiber is crucial for maintaining the state of polarization of the guided wave. In this paper, a new method for the detection of the eigen axes and precise alignment of the principal axes between two birefringent fibers (HiBi) using shear interferometry is presented.
