Paper Abstract

The paper discusses uncertainty of estimates of the first order PMD parameters in a fiber in the context of their use to characterize quality of optical fiber communication lines. It was recently shown that when the parameters are estimated from waveforms of the signal transmitted through a fiber the uncertainty of the estimates can be considerably large. The results however, were based on an approximation which might not reproduce well the distribution of the parameters, particularly in the tail. This may lead to overestimation of uncertainty, the most influential in the range of low DGD values. The paper presents the method in which a more exact approximation can be obtained and provides estimate uncertainty results for this specific range.
