Abstract

We apply a local two-photon bleaching model to describe polarization grating formation in birefringent optical fibers. We show that the dynamics of the grating formation at each point in the fiber follows a universal growth history and study how the dynamics of the grating development can shed light on the underlying material parameters characterizing the two-photon photosensitivity.
