Abstract

Modulation instability generated by the coherent interaction of two polarization modes in a weakly birefringent optical fiber has been observed in the normal dispersion regime. In contrast to previous observations of cross-phase-modulation instability in the visible, the two generated sidebands have the same polarization, which is orthogonal to that of the pump, and their frequency shift is readily controlled by variation of the birefringence of the fiber. The frequency of the modulation and its qualitative features agree with those theoretically predicted.
