Abstract

The effect of chromatic dispersion on a photonic link employing polarization modulation is studied analytically and experimentally. For analog polarization modulation, dispersion introduces a frequency-dependent rotation to the orientation of modulation about the center of modulation. As a result, the dispersion-limited bandwidth of the link will depend on receiver design.
