Abstract

We perform Monte Carlo simulations of the statistical properties of the differential group delay for fiber lengths less than and of the order of the birefringence correlation length. We find that the manner in which quantities related to the polarization mode dispersion evolve along the fiber depends significantly on the model assumed for the form of the birefringence.
