Paper Abstract

In this presentation, the effects of twist in fiber laser cavities on the polarization properties of the high linear birefringent fiber laser are reported. The directions and frequencies of two polarization eigenmodes are found to be a complicated function of the twist rate. At low twist rate, the directions coincided with the fiber main axis and their beat frequency did not decrease monotonically. Experimental observations in high birefringent fiber laser will be explained by a simple theoretical model.
