Paper Abstract

Optical and acoustic properties of two-mode optical fibers are described. The principle of acousto-optic interaction between the LP01 and LP11 modes is explained, and typical experimental setups are described. Experimental results for frequency shifters, tunable filters, and scanning interferometers base on two-mode acousto-optic interaction are presented. The importance of fiber nonuniformity is discussed.
