2 x 2 optical switching fibre polarisation switch and polarisation controller
A liquid crystal based optical fibre polarisation switch is demonstrated. Switching voltages of about 3V were used and switching speeds of a few Hz obtained. In addition, the device may be used as the basis for a polarisation controller in coherent optical detection schemes.
