Abstract

The temporal coherence property is an important factor for interferometric fiber sensing and transmission systems. When two polarization mode beams of birefringent fibers are used in such systems, the second order dispersion difference between them may affect the coherence properties even if group delay difference is compensated.1 However, there is not enough investigation carried out on the dispersion difference and its effect.2
