Paper Abstract

In this paper we present mathematical models for the simulation of polarization mode dispersion and polarization dependent losses based on Mueller matrices. We have simulated the modulation of the spectrum in the communication line as a function of random losses inherent to polarization-dependent components. After statistical treatment of spectra we obtain information about polarization dependent losses (PDL). We have shown that our theoretical results coincide with reported in the literature other simulated data.
