Paper Abstract

Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) hampers development of greater than or equal to 10 Gb/s trunk lines but can be compensated by endless polarization controllers and birefringent fiber. We demonstrate automatic 10 Gb/s PMD compensation using three deformed-helix ferroelectric liquid crystal cells.
