Paper Abstract

Polarization mode dispersion (PMD), polarization dependent loss (PDL) and chromatic dispersion (CD) of fiber optic components and fiber transmission links are key issues in fiber optical communication. Of interest are the respective static values as well as their variations in time which might be due to environmental changes or due to rerouting. Basic aspects will be briefly addressed, a variety of standard and state-of-the-art characterization and monitoring techniques will be reviewed and recent experimental results will be presented.
