Paper Abstract

In-fiber acousto-optic interaction is used to investigate the refractive index changes generated along an Yb-doped fiber by a 976 nm pump. The transmission notch created by the acoustic-induced coupling between the core mode and a cladding mode shifts to longer wavelengths when the pump is delivered to the fiber. Thermal and electronic contributions of the refractive index change are analyzed from the wavelength shift. Additionally, the non-uniform distribution of pump absorption along the fiber length is investigated by a time-resolved acousto-optic technique.
