Embedded fiber optic polarizers are designed to polarize the output from a fiber or light source and send it into the designated output fiber. Such polarizers generally consist of an input and output collimators comprising an inbuilt plate polarizer in between. These devices are small pieces of cable placed in-line with fiber such that it is able to polarize received light signal. Embedded fiber optic polarizers are systems capable of providing the highly refined output signal of high amplitude. Polarization-controlled fibers produce outputs with maximum intensity and bandwidth without any hindrance in velocity. Other unique characteristics of embedded fiber optic polarizers includes good performance characteristics such as high extinction ratio, low insertion loss, and high return loss. Further, installing embedded fiber optic polarizers instead of discrete polarizer enhances its polarization capability.
