Abstract

We studied the transmission characteristics of higher-order rocking filters induced mechanically in birefringent microstructured fibers and standard elliptical core fibers with varying spectral dependence of phase modal birefringence. We demonstrated the effect of birefringence dispersion on polarization mode coupling induced by a point-like force. We also investigated the spectral dependence of the resonance depth and force-induced resonance wavelength shift in mechanical rocking filters. The observed phenomena were explained by a numerical model linking the spectral dependence of the polarization mode coupling coefficient with the dispersion of intrinsic fiber birefringence and applied force.
