PMD and PDL Interaction Induced Complex DGD and Nonorthogonal PSP by Jones Matrix Eigenanalysis
Because the orthogonality of PSP (principal states of polarization) is correlated with instantaneous differential group delay (DGD), in presence of PDL (polarization dependent loss), differential group delay (DGD) becomes complex, and the PSP orthogonality goes bad. It is investigated into the image DGD probability density function (PDF) and nonorthogonal PSP bandwidth, and the signal distortion due to image DGD is discussed. Several new properties have been found which will help us in recognizing and reforming the PMD and PDL co-existent optical networks.
