Abstract
The purpose of this presentation is to describe an optical set up developed to measure axial stress in optical fibers and all fiber devices. It is believed that knowledge and control of residual stresses will impact the future development of all fiber components. Single mode fibers used in optical devices usually have two vectorial propagations modes. A stressed induced non-uniform index distribution will affect the following parameters: polarization mode dispersion, polarization dependant loss and mode coupling ratio in optical devices. Those effects have to be well characterised due to recent increases in bit rate of optical transmission systems requiring better component performances. In this paper, we will explain how our measurement system works and show some preliminary results.
