Singlemode fiber cables SMC and SMC-E

Standard singlemode fibers are rotationally symmetric step-index fibers with no defined axes of propagation. Rotational asymmetry, produced during the manufacturing process, causes irregular birefringence so that the linearly polarized radiation coupled into the fiber is transformed into elliptically polarized radiation. The state of polarization is also altered by fiber bending or by temperature variations.
