Abstract

The propagation of Gaussian optical pulses through optical PM-HiBi (Polarization Maintaining Highly Birefringent) fibers is analyzed and simulated. Based upon a model of propagation as described by Marcuse, et. al, [1] and Sunnerud, et.al, [2], and the use of PMD (Polarization Mode Dispersion) compensators and emulators used by Kogelnik, et. al [2], [3] and Lima, et. al. [4], we construct a simple model that allows graphical representation of the distortion experienced by optical pulses when propagating in a PM-HiBi fiber for different initial polarizations. The results of our analysis have the benefit of being identical to the more elaborate models of [1], [2], while also providing the additional advantage of simple graphical representation.
