Abstract: Lossless polarizers are conservative nonlinear optical devices that transform unpolarized light into highly polarized light without polarization-dependent losses. The device proposed here consists of an up to 100-m-long segment of nonlinear highly birefringent or unidirectionally spun fiber pumped from the output end by an intense backwardpropagating beam. An initially unpolarized (scrambled) signal beam acquires a degree of polarization close to 100% toward the fiber output.
