Circular birefringence is a property of chiral materials. In this work, we consider the use of chiral materials in optical fibres to produce circularly birefringent optical fibres and in fibres where a contrast in circular birefringence contributes to forming the waveguide. (t϶-menthyl methacrylate is also investigated as a possible material for the fabrication of such fibres.
