Abstract

A technique is described to eliminate polarization-induced fading in fiber-optic interferometers with two or three polarizers. Modeling and simulation show that two polarizers should be angularly spaced by 90° to alleviate polarization-induced fading. A test system is set up with two 6.5   km fiber coils to link the data. A bistate polarization diversity receiver is tested for reducing polarization-induced fading. The signal is demodulated using a digital phase-generated carrier and the system demonstrates self-noise up to 7.7   μrad / Hz ( at   1   kHz ) .
