Abstract

Using the coupled-mode theory, we have developed a theoretical model to analyze the effects of lateral load and external twist on polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) of spun and unspun fibers. Modeling results show that spun and unspun fibers have very different PMD responses to lateral load and external twist. Experimental results show good agreement with the theory.
