Abstract

An intensity discriminator for optical pulses can be made with a birefringent fiber. Such a discriminator would be useful for separating the intense subpicosecond pulses formed by solitonlike compression from the weaker uncompressed background. The discriminator utilizes an intensity-dependent state of polarization out of the fiber.
