A study of photo-induced birefringence reveals that stress-induced high birefringence fibers, in contrast to low-birefringence fibers, are photo-insensitive along the fast axis. The induced birefringence in high-birefringence fibers is permanent, whereas the change in low-birefringence fibers is reversible.
