Polarization Maintaining & Specialty Optical Fiber

There are many types of bare optical fiber available to satisfy the various applications where fiber optics are used today. Polarization Maintaining Fiber or PM Fiber is one type of single mode specialty optical fiber. Light travels in the form of an electro-magnetic wave so it has the properties of an electric wave and a magnetic wave which means that light travels in two planes. Some optical equipment and components need to receive the light in only one plane in order to process it the right way. Polarization maintaining fiber allows the light to only travel along a single plane. Mechanical stress factors are introduced during the fiber manufacturing process and these stresses force the light to travel in a single plane so that when it reaches the equipment it is in a form that the equipment can understand.
