Paper Abstract

We firstly propose an approach to compensate the polarization mode dispersion (PMD) effectively in optical true time delay (TTD) system composed of a Faraday Rotation Mirror (FRM), a normal 3-port circular. The TTD system can preserve an arbitrary input state of polarization regardless of any external perturbations, and is complete free from polarization effects. We demonstrate experimentally the polarization-stability of the TTD system and discuss the RF correspond of the TTD system.
