Paper Abstract

We show how to estimate accurately the Jones matrix of the transmission line by analyzing the Stokes vectors of DP-QPSK signals. This method can be used to perform in-situ PMD measurement in dual-polarization QPSK systems, and in addition to the constant modulus algorithm (CMA) to mitigate polarization-induced impairments. The applicability of this method to other modulation formats is discussed.
