Abstract

We present an analysis of the effects of input polarization on the output fringe visibility of two-beam interferometric fiber-optic sensors, which predicts the existence of interferometer input-polarization eigenmodes for which optimum visibility is obtained. Experimental results that verify this are also presented.
