Paper Abstract

A combination of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) and polarization dependent loss (PDL) in a fiber optic system will lead to a complex principal state vector. We report the autocorrelation function (ACF) for such a complex principal state vector. It is shown that the correlation bandwidth decreases with the increasing PDL.
