Abstract

We study continuous-wave light propagation through a twisted birefringent single-mode fiber amplifier with saturable nonlinearity. The corresponding coupled-mode system is isomorphic to a non-Hermitian nonlinear dimer and gives rise to analytic polarization-mode dynamics. It provides an optical simulation of the semi-classical non-Hermitian Bose–Hubbard model and suggests its use for the design of polarization circulators and filters, as well as sources of polarized light.
