Title: Enhanced power transfer and mode coupling in spun twin-core optical fibers

Abstract

In a twin-core optical fiber a propagating light pulse periodically transfers power between its two cores. Experiments by Tjugiarto {ital et} {ital al}. [Opt. Lett. {bold 17,} 1058 (1992)] have demonstrated that this coupling length is considerably reduced when the fiber is also spun. A coupled-mode analysis reveals a pitch resonance that couples a cladding mode with the circularly polarized core mode whose handedness matches that of the helical twist of the cores. This resonance mechanism explains the observation of enhanced coupling and cladding-mode cross coupling. {copyright} {ital 1996 Optical Society of America.}
