Abstract

The dynamic energy exchange between the two orthogonal modes of an elliptical-core photosensitive optical fiber was measured. We found that the polarization of the light in the fiber always tends to move toward the fast axis, which implies an asymmetry in the photosensitive properties of the fiber.
