A directional coupler has been made which exhibits a 9-dB polarization selectivity. One-half of the coupler is polished parallel and the other half perpendicular to the elliptical stress cladding of a high-birefringence fiber. Measurements on the coupler and on the fiber suggest a procedure for improving the selectivity.
