Paper Abstract

We have developed several light modulation techniques, using all-fiber interferometers, based on the combination of the dynamic phase response and the control of the polarization. On the one hand, two all-fiber Mach-Zender interferometers have been designed to generate rf modulated light at 633 nm and 830 nm. The actual experimental arrangement covers the frequency range 1 kHz to 1 GHz and has been proposed as a frequency response calibrator of optical detectors. On the other hand, a technique to modulate the transmission of all-fiber mirrors (Sagnac interferometers) has been developed. We have demonstrated the use of this technique to modulate the transmission in the frequency range 1 - 10 MHz and to generate 200 ns pulses.
