Abstract: The interplay between linear birefringence, nonlinear polarization changes, and chromatic dispersion may lead to phase-matched parametric four-photon mixing. As a result, new modulational polarization instabilities are predicted in single-mode fibers: Instability of an intense light beam may occur even when the wave is coupled to a spatially stable eigenmode, and propagates in the normal-dispersion regime.
