Abstract

We demonstrate that within the framework of the hinge model, the polarization mode dispersion (PMD) vector correlation function averaged over time and wavelength is only appreciably affected by the position of the last hinge. Further, the correlation function width is found within the context of a standard hinge model to decrease nearly monotonically with the number of hinges. We finally derive, through a theoretical analysis, an upper bound for the mean squared differential group delay of the last fiber section in the link in terms of the correlation function.
