In the single-polarization optical fiber, two isolated stress-applying parts contribute to radiate one of the two orthogonal polarization modes due to the asymmetrical geometric-index effect in addition to a stress-induced birefringence effect without bending the fiber. The loss spectra for x- and y-polarizations and the length dependence of the crosstalk show that the present fiber exhibits single-polarization characteristics
