Paper Abstract

This paper describes a method for measuring modal birefringence in optical fibers. It combines an interferometric technique with wavelength scanning and allows a high precision, nondestructive measurement of the birefringence along different sections of a long optical fiber. The experimental results for hi-bi fibers, 10-meters and 100-meters long, are presented. An accuracy of about 0.1% is achieved in the spectral range of 600 - 850 nm.
