Paper Abstract

In this work we present experimental results of the twist-induced birefringence changes for a single-mode erbium-doped fiber with uniform residual birefringence. Two polarimetric methods were used in this study. Both discern evolution of the azimuth and ellipticity angles of the output polarization state. According to these results when the initial residual birefringence is elliptical, the modified optical anisotropy does not enhance its optical activity.
