Abstract
A virtual Mueller matrix method is proposed to measure the first- and second-order polarization mode dispersion (PMD) vectors in optical fibers. This method not only can use a large frequency step to attain low-noise PMD vector data, but also does not require knowledge of the input polarization states. Our measurement method has a simpler setup and is more accurate than the traditional Mueller matrix method.
