Paper Abstract

In general, the state of polarization fluctuates randomly in the long fiber transmission system due to the surrounding temperature variation or external force on the fiber. The environmental influences, for example changes in stress and disturbance of water wave are more apparently under water. Consequently, to obtain the effective state of polarization stabilization method of transmission fiber becomes more and more important before achieving a under water remote polarization sensing system. In this paper, we use our homemade compensator to reduce the impact on the state of polarization (SOP) to and experimentally measure the polarization characteristics in underwater sensing. An effective polarization compensation apparatus is demonstrated in this paper. The stabilization of the polarization fluctuation is also achieved with applying our homemade compensator. Our experimental contributions can help the remote polarization signal transmission between land and under water.
