Paper Abstract

We have measured Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) and Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL) in chirped fiber Bragg gratings for dispersion compensation and in long-period fiber gratings for gain flattening. PMD and PDL were measured in reflection and in transmission by using a polarization analyzer and a tunable laser diode. Typical experimental results are presented for two grating devices.
