Paper Abstract

We have experimentally found that, for a communication system with many PDL and PMD components, the global PDL and the product of the maximum and minimum transmission coefficients (TmaxTmin) are wavelength dependent, even though they were treated as wavelength independent in the most of the simulations. At a given wavelength, however the PDL and PMD elements are concatenated, the global TmaxTmin of the system is equal to the products of the TmaxTmin of each comprising element.
