Representation of second-order polarisation mode dispersion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new expansion for the Jones matrix of a transmission medium is used to describe high-order polarisation dispersion. Each term in the expansion is characterised by a pair of principal states and the corresponding dispersion parameters. With these descriptors, a new expression for pulse deformation is derived and confirmed by simulation.
