Polarization Dependent Loss is Dominant Performance-limiting Factor
Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL) is the dominant performance-limiting factor of high speed optical networks with per-channel bit rates of 10 Gb/s or more, so Elliot Scientific offers solutions for simulation and reduction of PDL in fibre optic networks, and solutions for PMD simulation, from globally renowned calibration artefact supplier Taliescent.
PDL is present to a varied extent in nearly every fibre optic component. In itself, PDL can be detrimental to the performance of both fibre optic telecommunications and test & measurement systems, but it can also interact with Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) and lead to increased uncertainty in bit error rates.
