Abstract

The dynamics of the state of polarization in multimode fiber amplifiers is presented. The experimental results reveal that although the state of polarizations at the output can vary over a large range when changing the temperatures of the fiber amplifiers, the variations are significantly reduced when resorting to the principal states of polarization in single-mode fiber amplifiers and principal modes in multimode fiber amplifiers.
