Paper Abstract

The design of in-line phase and frequency shifters for single mode fibers is discussed. The basic configuration consists of a cylindrically symmetric piezoelectric transducer fabricated on the fiber surface. For the phase shifter the fiber core is concentric and no polarization coupling occurs. The frequency shifter utilizes a birefringent fiber with a non-concentric core and transducer pairs driven 90° out of phase. Factors affecting the performance of both devices are discussed.
