Anisotropy in spun single-mode fibres
A.J.Barlow, J.J.Ramskov Hansen, D.N.Payne
It is shown that the dominant process for the reduction of birefringence in a spun fibre is the averaging of the local fibre anisotropy by the rapid procession of the axes of asymmetry along the fibre. No significant change in cross-sectional geometry occurs.
