Paper Abstract

A dynamic depolarized light based on the polarization chaos is generated from a SOA-based fiber ring laser experimentally. And also a theoretical model is developed to analyze the experiment phenomenon. By simulation, it is revealed that the polarization dependency in the fiber cavity can cause polarization chaos just as the anisotropy within SOA does, and the numerical results consist well with the experiment results. With the polarization chaos, we have obtained a dynamically depolarized light with a low dynamical DOP less than 3% and with polarization changing rate as high as about several million Hertz.
