In-service monitoring of PMD induced optical signal degradation using SOP vector trajectory on the Poincare Sphere for high-speed reconfigurable optical networks

Abstract

We studied an in-service signal quality estimation method by using wavelength resolved SOP vector trajectories on Poincare Sphere and successfully distinguished PMD induced signal degradation with sufficient accuracy from the other signal degradation factors.
