Abstract

The 8/9 normalization coefficient for the nonlinear refractive index in nonpolarization-maintaining optical fibers is confirmed directly by measurement of the ratio of the self- and cross-phase modulation coefficients for two orthogonal polarizations. The nonlinear phase shift is accurately measured with a dual-frequency beat signal as a pump source.
