Abstract: Graphene is a two-dimensional material which, as a result of its excellent photonic properties, has been investigated for a wide range of optical applications. In this paper, we propose and fabricate a commercial grade broadband graphene-based fiber polarizer using a low loss side-polished optical fiber platform. A high index polyvinyl butyral layer is used to enhance the light-graphene interaction of the evanescent field of the core guided mode to simultaneously obtain a high extinction ratio ~37.5 dB with a low device loss ~1 dB. Characterization of the optical properties reveals that the polarizer retains low transmission losses and high extinction ratios across an extended telecoms band. The results demonstrate that side-polished fibers are a useful platform for leveraging the unique properties of low-dimensional materials in a robust and compact device geometry.
