Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic heterodyne correlation-processing system is devised to investigate the spectral characteristics of the fluctuating optical waves propagated in a length of externally perturbed birefringent single-mode fiber. The power and cross-power spectra for the complex-amplitude fluctuations of the initially excited and cross-coupled modes guided in the orthogonal axes of the fiber are taken out of a beat-photocurrent spectrum with the help of a computer-aided processing system. The theoretical background and its experimental demonstrations are presented.
