Paper Abstract

A high-speed heterodyne polarimeter at 1.55 micrometers wavelength with an intermediate frequency of 1 GHz is demonstrated. To verify the good performance of the instrument, birefringence measurements on a polarization maintaining fiber with a submillimetric beat- length have been performed. The repeatability of the measurement is excellent, and the precision ranges around 0.3%.
