A polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) monitoring technique tailored for polarization-multiplexed high capacity optical transmission systems is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. First-order PMD is evaluated calculating the vector product of the spectral components of the two state-of-polarization transmitted in the polarization-multiplexed system. The spectral components in each state-of-polarization are resolved by a real-time optical Fourier transformer. The technique is demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
