Abstract

We present a novel four-state method for measuring the polarization dependent wavelength shift (PDW) of a fiber Bragg grating. We show that measurement of the grating's wavelength for only four different polarization states is sufficient to completely determine the grating's PDW, and we show favorable comparison of four-states PDW measurement results with results obtained using the conventional "all states" technique.
