Abstract

We show that the polarization mode dispersion of a constantly spun, single-mode fiber is strongly influenced by the autocorrelation function of its birefringence. In particular, under probable conditions, the mean square differential group delay of the spun fiber may even be higher than the delay that the same fiber would have if it were not spun.
