Title:
Efficient simulation of the swept-waveform polarization dynamics in fiber spools and Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) lasers 
Abstract:
We present a theoretical model and its efficient numerical implementation for the simulation of wavelength-swept waveform propagation in fiber systems such as Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) lasers, fully accounting for the polarization dynamics in fiber spools and further polarization-dependent optical components in the setup. This approach enables us to perform long-time simulations of the FDML laser dynamics over more than 100,000 cavity round trips, as required for some FDML configurations...    »
