Abstract

In a recent paper [Opt. Lett. 25, 290 (2000)] and a personal communication (MIT, Cambridge, Mass. 02139) Y. Chen and H. A. Haus analytically described the relative displacement among the orthogonally polarized components of a soliton that undergoes propagation in a fiber affected by polarization-mode dispersion. We show that the same results may also be derived by use of an approach alternative to that of Y. Chen and H. A. Haus.
