Emulator of first- and second-order polarization-mode dispersion

Published in IEEE Photonics Technology Letters. 2002, vol. 14, no. 5, p. 630-632
Abstract Contrary to approaches which try to mimic a standard fiber as closely as possible, the emulator presented here gives constant (but user adjustable) values for differential group delay (DGD) and ratio of first- to second-order polarization-mode dispersion (PMD). Once it is set, the ratio is conserved while the DGD can be easily varied within a range of 0–300 ps. This allows to investigate the low-probability events of large DGD and second-order PMD important for system outage.
