Davison, AS and White, IH (1988) Diode laser pumped, KERR phase-shifting and switching of a diode laser signal in a small area optical fibre. IEE Conference Publication. pp. 131-134. ISSN 0537-9989Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper authors report the first demonstration of a diode laser powered Kerr effect device, consisting of a single birefringent fiber, able to phase-shift and switch an optical signal generated by a second laser diode. They have obtained fast, stable phase-shifting of 90° in a single fiber, at a coupled pump power of only 20 mW. Using this phase shift to induce polarization switching with resultant gating, 25% modulation of the diode laser signal has been observed, with a detection limited-rise time of 10ns.
