Paper Abstract

Polarization dependent characteristics of the fiber-optic transmission systems become more important than ever before as the bit rates increase to 10 Gb/s and beyond. We derived the Jones matrix and Muller matrix of a polarization controller (PC), and in our experiment, we can get every wanted state of polarization (SOP) at the PC output with all kinds of input SOP. Using PC as a key component, we designed a polarization stabilizer. With the unknown change of the input SOP and random shift of the environment, the polarization stabilizer can maintain a fixed SOP through controlling the PC in real-time.
