Abstract

It is shown that zero polarization mode dispersions can never be achieved in elliptical-core single-mode fibers by geometrical birefringence alone. To equalize the group delays of the two fundamental modes, stress-induced birefringence must be introduced to cancel, partly or completely, the geometrical birefringence, depending on the application. 8 refs.
