Paper Abstract

Polarization mode coupling in hi-bi fibers may be achieved either statically, via the writing of photorefractive gratings, or dynamically, via the optical Kerr-effect of a propagating optical pulse. In each case the coupling can occur under the influence of an external measurand which can then be measured distributedly or quasi-distributedly. Examples are given of a static method and of a dynamic method for implementing good-performance distributed measurement systems.
