Abstract

We have studied the influence of the angular rotations among four birefringent optical fibers on the performance of a system of intrinsic sensors in noncoherent light. The results obtained by the Jones formalism show that angular rotations of the order of 5° are sufficient to yield the visibility required for detection of the parameters of interest. As the angular rotations come closer to 1°, which is experimentally more difficult, the signal has better contrast.
