Abstract
The angle between the principal state of polarization fast and slow modes is investigated. In the presence of polarization dependent loss the angle is shown to become non-orthogonal and vary statistically. It is found that the statistics of the angle only depends on polarization dependent loss and is independent of polarization mode dispersion. This phenomena is investigated through experiments and simulations.
