Abstract

A detailed investigation of the coupled dynamics of the copropagating and counterpropagating polarization states in the optical loop fiber of a nonlinear amplifying loop mirror is performed. Analysis of the dynamics yields evidence for the existence of a polarization-insensitive configuration of the device.
