Abstract

We derive a recursion relation for the frequency autocorrelation function of the polarization dispersion vector for polarization mode dispersion emulators with rotators. The autocorrelation function has a nonzero background for an emulator with a fixed number of sections. This background diminishes slowly as the number of sections grows. Randomizing the section lengths removes the autocorrelation periodicity exhibited by an emulator with equal sections, but it does not remove the finite background.
