We show analytically how periodic spinning affects the polarization mode dispersion of a fiber in three different practical regimes that are determined by the values of three length scales: the beat length, the birefringence correlation length, and the spin period. We determine in which limits the spin is effective in reducing the mean differential group(More)
Backward Rayleigh scattering in optical fibers due to the fluctuations that are " frozen-in " to the fiber during the manufacturing process may limit the performance of optical sensors and bidirectional coherent optical communication systems. In this manuscript we describe a comprehensive model for studying intensity noise induced by spontaneous Rayleigh(More)
