Abstract

The observation of polarization preservation of circularly polarized pulses and depolarization of linearly polarized pulses as functions of input intensity in single-mode nonbirefringent optical fibers is modeled by the cross-amplitude modulation effects between the left-hand and the right-hand circularly polarized pulses. These observations are attributed to an asymmetric nonlinear susceptibility tensor and may lead to novel designs for fiber polarization communication and computation systems.
