Polarization-dependent gain and gain fluctuations in a fiber Raman amplifier
2007 (English)In: Journal of Optics. A, Pure and applied optics, ISSN 1464-4258, E-ISSN 1741-3567, Vol. 9, no 12, 1119-1122 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We report a new vector model of a fiber Raman amplifier with a randomly varying birefringence. We find that the analysis of gain fluctuations and polarization-dependent gain can be used for measurements of beat and birefringence correlation lengths and the polarization mode dispersion value on a long single-mode fiber. Results are consistent with a standard technique based on differential group delay measurements.
