Abstract

A method for on-line, real-time detection of wavelength drifts in laser diodes is proposed. This technique uses the wavelength dependence of the differential propagation constant between the LP01/LP11even or LP01/LP02 modes in two-mode fibers to measure wavelength changes that manifest themselves as intensity modulation in the output far field. Theoretical calculations show that wavelength drifts of the order of 10−18 m can be resolved by this technique.
