An optical fiber is kept along the$$\widehat Z$$ direction. The refractive indices for the electric fields
along $$\widehat X$$ and $$\widehat Y$$ directions in the fiber are $${n_x} = 1.5000$$ and $${n_y} = 1.5001$$, respectively ($${n_x} \ne {n_y}$$ due to the imperfection in the fiber cross-section). The free space wavelength of a light wave propagating in the fiber is $$1.5\,\,\,\mu m$$. If the light wave is circularly polarized at the input of the fiber, the minimum propagation distance after which it becomes linearly polarized, in centimeters, is _______ .
