Paper Abstract

The coupling between two spatial optical modes of a birefringent elliptical core fiber due to a travelling acoustic wave is experimentally investigated. Acoustic horns are used to excite acoustic flexural waves on a fiber. The distributed interaction of the LP01 and the LP11 modes along a strip section of fiber is determined by RF pulsing the acoustic wave. Particular attention has been given to studying the local orientation and twisting of the fiber along the acousto-optic coupling region. High coupling efficiency is also demonstrated.
