Abstract

In this paper, we study the optical Kerr effect theoretically in multimode birefringent optical fibers in connection with the characteristics of the fiber and excitation conditions. We observe experimentally, for a pump power 2 W in the fundamental mode, 70% modulation depth for the probe light with multimodal coupling.
