Paper Abstract

A Ti:LiNbO3 acousto-optical TE-TM converter followed by a 45 degree(s) linear polarizer allows us to measure the Stokes parameters. A wavelength-selective demonstration unit with 9 MHz electrical measurement bandwidth, roughly 0.04 rad accuracy and 250 GHz optical bandwidth has been developed. An acousto-optical TE-TM converter whose transducer is placed at 1/3 of the interaction length forms a polarization-independent optical depolarizer, suitable to suppress polarization hole burning in long haul EDFA links. We present a double- stage depolarizer with
