Abstract:We report on the investigation of distributed chromatic dispersion (CD) and distributed nonlinear coefficient (NLC) measurements based on phase mismatched four-wave mixing in dispersion-shifted fibers (DSFs). Experimental results of the distributed CD maps for low Polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) DSF fibers are discussed. We also report how nonnegligible values of PMD can adversely affect the distributed CD measurements. A new method to measure the distributed NLC map in low-PMD DSF fibers is also proposed and demonstrated experimentally.
