Paper Abstract

Recently, emphasis has been laid on Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) in high speed lightwave transmission systems, and it looms as a potentially dominant source of pulse distortion in ultrahigh-bit systems. The measurement of PMD is realized by two novel methods--modified OTDR methods and modified S-38 methods. Their results are consistent with these from wavelength scanning method.
