Paper Abstract

Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a major limitation in optical fiber transmission systems. The paper presents a new method of PMD compensation based on the use of highly birefringent (HB) bow-tie fibers. The method relies on the application of dynamically induced longitudinal strain that modifies differential group delay (DGD) responsible for effective PMD compensation.
