Single-mode propagation of mutual temporal coherence: equivalence of time and frequency measurements of polarization-mode dispersion

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A formalism is presented for treatment of the mutual temporal coherence between orthogonal polarization modes in single-mode optical systems, permitting calculation of the effect of propagation through birefringent devices on this coherence. We demonstrate that, allowing for differences similar to the birefringent effects of fiber pigtails, polarization-mode dispersion data measured by use of frequency-scanning techniques are related by the Fourier transform to data measured by use of interferometric techniques.
