Paper Abstract

A novel method of measuring the polarization dependent loss (PDL) and the polarization mode dispersion (PMD) of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. This method eliminates the influence of components (e.g. circulator) on the PDL and PMD characterization of FBGs. The experimental results are compared with those measured using other methods.
