Abstract
We have recently demonstrated1-3 that the optical Kerr effect can be used in pulsed-pump, cw- probe configurations to detect changes in the linear birefringence of single mode optical fibres. This phenomenon can be used in different ways to detect the presence of stress in the fibres, to locate the stress and to measure the magnitude of the associated birefringence changes as a function of position along the fibre.
