Abstract

We have developed a reduced model of the evolution of the polarization states of the channels in a wavelength-division-multiplexed system that follows only the Stokes parameters for each channel. We apply this model to demonstrating that the expected repolarization of polarization-scrambled signals is small. We verify our results by comparing them with numerical simulations with realistic parameters.
