Anomalous relation between time and frequency domain PMD measurements

Abstract

We report nearly simultaneous measurements of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) in various samples of highly mode-coupled single-mode fiber using the measurement methods of Jones matrix eigenanalysis (JME) and Fourier-transformed wavelength scanning. The ratio of the PMD values resulting from these two methods differs by approximately 10% from current theoretical predictions. The measurements are verified by demonstrating the theoretical agreement between the JME and wavelength scanning extremum counting results.
