Polarization dependence of various fiber effects affecting signal quality in wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems has become a major field of research activities. Polarization– mode dispersion (PMD) and polarization–dependent loss (PDL) are quite well understood today, but there are still major open questions with respect to the interaction with… CONTINUE READING
