Twisted Hi-Bi fiber DFB lasers with controllable output polarization
Zervas, M.N., Wilmshurst, R. and Walker, L.M.B. (2012) Twisted Hi-Bi fiber DFB lasers with controllable output polarization At CLEO/QELS '12, United States. 06 - 11 May 2012. 2 pp.
We demonstrate that single polarization, hi-bi fiber DFB lasers are in general characterized by elliptical state of polarization, due to the in-built fiber birefringence axis rotation. Externally applied birefringence-axis twist is shown to provide accurate control of the output SOP. Continuous tuning from circular to linear polarization, with PER of ~40dB has been demonstrated.
