Paper Abstract

We report measurements of beat and birefringence correlation lengths, and the PMD value on a long single mode fiber. The proposed technique is based on the analysis of maximum and minimum polarization dependent gain in a fiber Raman amplifier. Results are consistent with a standard technique based on differential group delay measurements.
