Abstract
The optical coherence domain polarization (OCDP) system based on white light interferometry is used for the detection of distributed polarization mode coupling point in the polarization-maintaining fiber (PMF). Compared with existing OCDP, in order to detect the polarization coupling amplitude between the fast-axis and slow-axis of high precision PM fiber optic gyro ring, this paper presents a method of angular alignment for measuring polarization coupling in PMF used for OCDP. We add a light intensity detector and two alignment devices in the OCDP. We use the light intensity detector to detect the polarization of rotated PM fiber real-timely and use the two align devices to control the polarization of input and output PMF of fiber optic ring respectively. Based on the theory of Jones, we establish the simulation model of the polarization detection system so as to simulate the influence of different input or output polarization on light intensity; we also design the alignment system of PMF. The experimental results show that the above method can effectively achieve the polarization-maintaining fiber alignment, ratio of axial is 1°, measure the polarization coupling of optical fiber ring without optical fiber fusion splicing, and does not destroy the symmetry of sensitive ring. Overall, the method is simple and high precision.
