Polarization-mode dispersion measurement using a six-state RF phase-shift technique for high spectral efficiency

Published

Author(s)

Paul A. Williams, Jonathan D. Kofler

Abstract

We demonstrate record spectral efficiency for RF phase shift measurement of differential group delay and principal states of polarization. Unaveraged uncertainty is below 40 fs in 4.92 GHz bandwidth. Uncertainties and measurement procedures are detailed.
