Paper Abstract

We report the autocorrelation function (ACF) of polarization dependent loss (PDL) in optical systems having polarization mode dispersion (PMD). A characteristic PDL ACF is derived. It is shown that the PDL autocorrelation bandwidth is proportional to the inverse of the mean PMD and the proportionality constant is a function of mean PDL. Monte Carlo simulations of the autocorrelation functions confirm the analytical results.
