Abstract

An experimental study of stimulated four-photon mixing with crossed pump dividing in a birefringent optical fiber is described. The interactive four photons are all in the same mode but with different polarizations. The pump wave is distributed in two orthogonal linear polarizations, and the polarizations of Stokes and anti-Stokes waves are also orthogonal. It is shown that the Stokes shift of this stimulated four-photon mixing process is related not only to the material dispersion but also to the waveguide dispersion and is directly proportional to the birefringence.
