Paper Abstract

The polarization-scrambling technique could be used not only to suppress the polarization-induced detrimental effects in a long-haul lightwave system, but also to monitor various polarization-related parameters. However, this technique could interact with polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) and polarization-dependent loss, and then cause timing jitters, irregular intensity modulations, and PMD-induced repolarization. This problem could be substantially reduced by using the optimized scrambling frequency of about 10 kHz.
