Paper Abstract

Single-sideband frequency shifting has been demonstrated in birefringent fiber by using a traveling acoustic wave to couple the two orthogonal polarizations of the fiber. Both surface and bulk acoustic waves have been used. Frequency shifts as high as 15 MHz have been observed, with carrier and unwanted sideband suppressions of 25-30 dB, using acoustic powers of a few watts.
