Abstract

Using coupled-mode theory, we develop a theoretical model to analyze the effects of fiber spin profiles on polarization mode dispersion (PMD). Constant, sinusoidal, and frequency-modulated spin profiles are examined, and phase-matching conditions are analyzed. Our analysis shows that PMD can be reduced effectively by use of frequency-modulated spin profiles.
