The temperature dependence of polarization-dependent loss for a macrobending single-mode-fiber-based edge filter

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The temperature dependence of polarization-dependent loss (PDL) for a macrobending standard single-mode fiber (SMF28) is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The experimental results show an overall agreement with the proposed theoretical model over a temperature range from 0 ° C to 70 ° C. An SMF28-based edge filter is used as an example regarding temperature-dependent PDL performance. It is shown that the temperature variations have a significant influence on the polarization dependence of macrobending loss, and further impact on such a fiber bend loss edge filter used in a wavelength measurement application. It is also concluded that by using the proposed models, such a temperature-dependent birefringence can be beneficially predicted in bending fiber sensing applications. © 2009 IEEE.
