Abstract

First, the temperature effect on the output polarization degree of the fiber Lyot depolarizer was analyzed in this paper theoretically, which shows that when the environment temperature changes from −40℃ to 80℃, the degree of the output light polarization (DOP) of the fiber Lyot depolarizer will increase until about 70℃, then DOP begin to decrease. The further numerical simulations indicate that this result was caused together by thermally induced group birefringence and thermal coefficient of expansion of the polarization fiber. Using our made fiber Lyot depolarizer (DOP≤0.3% when the environment temperature is 20℃), DOP of the fiber Lyot depolarizer was studied at the condition of a variable temperature experimentally, the results are in agreement with the related theoretically results basically, at last, the difference between theoretical and experimental results is discussed, the possible methods to reduce the influence of the temperature on the output DOP of fiber Lyot depolarizer is presented in this paper. It is a good guiding significance to improve the depolarization performance of the fiber Lyot depolarizer in the fields of fiber sensor, fiber gyroscope, fiber Raman amplifier and so on as we believe.
