Fiber laser sources from visible to near-infrared wavelengths have driven innovative developments, impacting various domains such as telecommunications, biology, and medicine. The development of such fiber laser relies on the accurate knowledge of both optical properties as chromatic dispersion and material properties. On the other hand, quantum metrology is one of the promising field enabled by quantum technologies. It allows to get precise results compare to classical methods when measuring physical properties. A very common approach is to inject non classical states of light in interferometers to increase accuracy as well as sensitivity. Recently, this scheme has been used for detecting gravitational waves for example [1]. During the conference, we show how we take advantage of these capabilities to gather optical fiber photonic engineering with quantum optics. More specifically, we aim at presenting two quantum-based method for (i) high-accuracy (10-5) and dispersion-free measurement of refractive index difference and (ii) chromatic dispersion measurement based on the concept of quantum white-light interferometry that allows absolute measurement of chromatic dispersion with ~2.5 times improved accuracies compared to state-of-the-art realizations at telecom wavelengths.
