Abstract

We calculate the asymptotic first-order polarization mode dispersion statistics of constantly spun fibers. We show that in the long length regime the mean differential group delay of constantly spun fibers grows linearly with distance at the same rate as for unspun fibers. Conversely, the short length regime of constantly spun fibers may be much longer, even for limited spin rates.
