Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


We investigate experimentally two counter-propagating beams that travel through multimode fibers with strong mode coupling. The interferences between waves going through time-reversed paths can enhance, and surprisingly sometimes suppress, coherent backscattering to the input mode.
