Abstract

The stress-optic rotation coefficient, describing the twist-induced optical activity in single-mode optical fibers, has been accurately measured by means of polarization-sensitive frequency domain reflectometry. Measurements have been performed on both spun and unspun fibers and the measured values of vary between 0.14 and 0.15, with an uncertainty of less than 4%.
