Tunable polarization-dependent loss element based on acoustooptic mode coupling in a polarization-maintaining fiber

Abstract

We demonstrate a tunable polarization-dependent loss (PDL) element based on the polarization-dependent coupling of the fundamental core mode to the cladding mode by the flexural acoustic wave in a polarization-maintaining fiber with an elliptical stress member. The resonant wavelength of PDL is tunable by adjusting the frequency of radio-frequency (RF… (More)
