Original Abstract

The goal of this chapter is to present basic effects, which lead to occurrence of linear and circular birefringence in single-mode fibers. The methods, which may be used in order to suppress unwanted birefringence, will be presented also. Since the main manifestation of birefringence effects is the transformation of the polarization state of transmitted light, a brief recapitulation of basic polarization states and their illustrative visualizations are given. In following subchapters various mechanisms, which induce birefringence will be introduced together with corresponding relations and comprehensible illustrations. In the last descriptive subchapter the most significant methods for unwanted linear birefringence are presented with their properties and references to related literature.
