Paper Abstract

A deterministic first-order and second-order polarization-mode-dispersion (PMD) emulator or compensator using binary polarization switches is demonstrated. The rotation angles of polarization switches are ±22.5° and are used in pairs between birefringent elements to provide 0, 45 and 90-degree polarization coupling to generate either first-order (0 and 90-degree) or second-order (45-degree) PMD. We also verify the repeatability of such module for practical applications.
