Generalized frequency dependence of output Stokes parameters in an optical fiber system with PMD and PDL/PDG.

Abstract

Dependence of output optical power, Stokes vector and degree of polarization on optical frequency is presented for an optical fiber system with both polarization mode dispersion and polarization-dependent loss or gain. The newly formulated equations are generalized for input light with arbitrary degree of polarization. The spectral resolved measurements of polarization mode dispersion using partially polarized light agree well with our theory.
