Paper Abstract

One of the conventional methods to improve the operational stabilization of the Mach-Zehnder fiber interferometer is using the single-loop-feedback (SLF) compensation for the phase drift between the signal and reference arm of the interferometer"2"3). However, the random variation of the wave polarization state in the single-mode fiber of the two arms will affect the stability of the mixing efficiency when the two beams combine, unless polarization-maintaining fibers are used. Without the special fiber, one may apply automatic gain control MGC) circuit4) in the detection to stabilize the amplitude of the detected signal but the signal-to-noise performance of the system can not be promoted, especially in the presence of severe polarization fading 5).
