Paper Abstract

Due to increasing demands for bandwidth are nowadays very popular optical networks. Installation of new fiber-optic networks is expensive, so is necessary to use existing fiber optic network very effectively. The main parameters that limit the optical networks are dispersion and attenuation. Efficiency optical networks could improve the use of two polarization axes, similar to the technology used in radio technologies. Use of fiber preserves polarization allows the use of two polarization planes. This article deals with the optical wavelength division multiplex in the polarization maintaining fibers.
