Paper Abstract

A measurement method of distributed birefringence dispersion (BD) for polarization-maintaining fiber is presented. This method is based on white light interferometry and optimization method. The sharpness function proposed in this paper is theoretically proved that will reach its maximum at the proper BD value. In addition, it is robust to noise demonstrated via simulation experiment. Eventually, the measurement result of average distributed BD for a 500m-long PMF coil with splicing points is -392.6 fs2/m and the relative error for every splicing point is less than 0.5‰.
