Reliable phase-shift measurements in optical fibres were performed by downshifting the modulation frequency of the optical signal to the low-frequency range before detection. This technique maintains the full resolution of the high-frequency modulation and increases the sensitivity allowing accurate group delay measurements in single-mode fibres over a 300 nm spectral range using a single LED.
