Polarization holding in birefringent single-mode fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Perturbations in highly birefringent single-mode fibers couple the two polarization modes and degrade the polarization-holding ability. With a broadband source we demonstrate wavelength averaging of the power in either mode, permitting a simple measurement of the power transfer to the cross-polarized mode as a function of fiber length. Using this technique, we confirm experimentally the theory of random mode coupling between the polarization modes.
