Paper Abstract

Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) has become the major limiting factor for long haul high bitrate optical fiber transmission. This paper analyzes measurement methods of PMD in optical fiber with the polarization dependent loss (PDL) and the effects of the PDL and wavelength-scanning interval on the measurement results. Finally, we perform Monte-Carlo simulations with waveplate models on the statistics of first and second order PMD in single mode fiber with the PDL.
