Title: Full PMD vector measured directly from modulated data using linear optical sampling
Published: July 15, 2009
Abstract: We demonstrate a new technique to monitor the polarization-mode dispersion in a fiber communication channel by analyzing the modulated data at the fiber output measured with Polarization-Sensitive Linear Optical Sampling (PS-LOS).
