Paper Abstract

In this work, the birefringence response of two commercial single-mode erbium-doped fibers to right and left twist is reported. The evolution of the output polarization state for a variable twist (0 to ±8π) was mapped on the Poincaré sphere and analyzed considering the specific variation of each one of the Stokes parameters. These fibers were studied over the wavelength range from 1520 to 1570 nm. We found that the contributions of photo-elastic effect and torsion introduced during the fiber fabrication modify twist induced birefringence in erbium-doped fibers.
