Resum
This paper shows, theoretically and experimentally, how a polarization scrambler increases the response stability of a fiber Mach–Zehnder interferometer. We have studied the situation when the scrambler is placed in one of the interferometer branches and also when it is placed at the interferometer input. The measurements carried out using a scrambler based on the Faraday effect, agree with the simulation results.
