The recently observed difference in polarization mode dispersion (PMD) between spooled and cabled single-mode optical fibers is investigated experimentally. To discriminate between a large polarization mode-coupling length or a large birefringence as a cause of high PMD, both parameters are measured. The results show a factor of 50 difference between the mode-coupling lengths of spooled and cabled fibers, which accounts for the larger PMD's of cabled fibers. It is suggested that cables with a… CONTINUE READING
