Paper Abstract

We have studied the spectral dependence of the Stokes parameters, degree of polarization and the PDL in cascaded long-period gratings in Mach-Zehnder and Michelson interferometric arrangements. The LPGs were made using the arc-fusion method. The PDL and depolarization were found to be lower for the Michelson arrangement compared to the Mach-Zehnder interferometric scheme.
