Abstract

The polarization changes induced by a strong wave on a copropagating weaker wave in a single-mode birefringent fiber are investigated. Quantitative analysis and measurements are presented for the dependence of these polarization changes on the relative input state of polarization of the two waves as well as on their frequency separation.
