Paper Abstract

A numerical model based on Mueller matrix formalism is developed to include depolarization effects in the statistics of Polarization-Dependent Loss (PDL) in recirculating loops. The model shows that depending on the degree of depolarization introduced at each round trip, the maximum value of PDL is limited to lower values when compared with completely polarized light. First experimental evidence of this effect is also reported with estimation of the degree of polarization, DOP, introduced in the system, mainly due to spontaneous emission noise of the optical amplifiers.
