Abstract

Modal birefringence of highly birefringent fibers can be measured nondestructively by the elastooptic modulation method. Based on this modulation method, a new method for precisely measuring the wavelength dependence of modal birefringence in highly birefringent fibers is presented using an incoherent light source such as a fiber Raman laser.
