Abstract
We present the results of measurements of modal birefringence and temperature sensitivity of birefringent holey fibers fabricated by Fiber Optic Group, University of Marie Curie-Sklodowska (UMCS) in Lublin, Poland. The birefringence measurements were carried out in a wide spectral range of 0.63 - 1.57 μm in two fibers with different hole diameters and pitch distances. Our results show that absolute value of birefringence increases against wavelength and is one order of magnitude greater than in conventional highly birefringent fibers. The measurements of temperature sensitivity carried out for bare fibers show that zero sensitivity can be achieved at certain wavelength.
