We demonstrated unique polarization dependence in acousto-optic coupling in a two-mode hollow optical fiber (HOF). Local deformation of circular HOF induced by traveling acoustic wave resulted in highly birefringent optical transmission characteristics, which were experimentally analyzed for various central airhole sizes. Potential applications for polarization-dependent devices such as polarization-dependent loss compensators and broadband polarization controllers are discussed.
