Paper Abstract

We constructed a standard measurement setup for polarization mode dispersion (PMD) based on Jones matrix eigen-analysis method. We measured a differential group delay of a 1 m-long polarization maintaining fiber (PMF) and evaluated the measurement uncertainty to be less than 0.6 %. As a transfer standard for PMD, we fabricated mode-coupled PMD artifacts by concatenating the 50 PMF sections with random birefringent axis orientation. Using the standard setup, we certificated the PMD values of the three PMD artifacts to be 0.0884 ps, 0.977 ps, 1.541 ps with the standard uncertainty of 0.4 fs, 16 fs, 23 fs, respectively.
