One of the most important problem of modern optical fiber transmission systems is their bandwidth limitation due to polarization mode dispersion. There are a lot of dispersion compensation methods leading to increase of the bandwidth of transmitted signals. One of them is based on application of Faraday phenomenon caused in optical fiber by external magnetic field. In the paper we present results of measurements of polarization parameters of light passing through different kind of optical fibers. One of the polarization parameters named degree of polarization and its changes allows to conclude about polarization mode dispersion. Hence we can utilize our results for design of a magneto-optical system for dynamic polarization mode dispersion compensation.
