Abstract

Analytic equations for the degree of polarization of the output lightwave from jointed fibers are derived taking into account the coherence time of light and polarization mode dispersion in the fibers. On the basis of the results, the depolarizing conditions and the principles of optics of the Lyot depolarizer are discussed.
