Faraday effect in standard optical fibers: dispersion of the effective Verdet constant

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We have measured the Faraday effect in silica standard optical fibers in the wavelength range 458–1523 nm. An effective Verdet constant V ef that exhibits a linear dependence on the square of the optical frequency ν is defined: V ef = (0.142 ± 0.004) × 10−28 ν 2 rad T−1 m−1. We demonstrate that the negative effects of a small linear birefringence can be minimized by adjustment of the input polarization to an optimum state.
