In this paper, we study the optical Kerr effect theoretically in multimode birefringent optical fibers in connection with the characteristics of the fiber and excitation conditions. We observe experimentally, for a pump power 2 W in the fundamental mode, 70% modulation depth for the probe light with multimodal coupling.
