Abstract
In this paper, we introduced a novel method to fabricate 40Gbit/s optical time division multiplexer by using PZT to modify the length of fiber, and investigated its polarization sensitivity. Optical fiber couplers were sensitive to polarization. Their coupling ratio changed with the fluctuation of polarization state, so the output power of multiplexer fluctuated. Polarization scrambler was adopted to reduce the polarization sensitivity of OTDM system for the first time and its validity was testified by the experiment.
