Abstract

We analyze the evolution of the polarization state of a signal in a recirculating loop with polarization-dependent loss. We show that the polarization-state evolution in experiments is in qualitative agreement with our analysis, and we discuss the relationship between the polarization-state evolution and the Q factor.
