<emphasis role="bold">Description</emphasis> Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a property of a single-mode fiber or an optical component where pulse spreading is caused by different propagation velocities of the signal’s two orthogonal polarizations. Optical fibers or optical components can be modeled with two orthogonal polarization axes called principal states of polarization (PSP). An o…
