Paper Abstract

We present an analytical study of the output intensity fluctuations caused by the polarization mode dispersion (PMD) and the polarization dependent loss (PDL). An analytical expression for the Jones matrix autocorrelation function (ACF) in presence of the PMD and PDL is derived. The analytical ACF can be applied to different modulation formats leading to the analytical evaluation of the eye diagram.
