English term or phrase: tow polarization
Light travelling in an optical fiber actually forms hybrid-type modes, which are usually referred to as LP (linear polarization) modes.
The LP0p modes have tow polarization degrees of freedom and are two-fold degenerate, and the LPmp modes with m≥1 are four-fold degenerate.
These degeneracies are not counted when designating the number of LP modes propagating in the fiber.
