Abstract

We report on an exact analytic method to evaluate the optical eye diagram due to polarization-mode dispersion (PMD), polarization-dependent loss (PDL), and chromatic dispersion (CD) in dynamic fiber links for any given optical pulse sequence. With this method we consider all orders of PMD and PDL, and we obtain the time-dependent average output light intensity as well as its corresponding variations. With this method we can obtain accurate impairment evaluations for communication systems due to given PMD, PDL, and CD. Time jitter caused by the PMD and PDL polarization direction correlation is also discussed.
