Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) contributions by each birefringent fibre section on an optical network link can be best analyzed through PMD emulation. A sub-emulator was design from coupling sections of Polarization Maintaining Fibres (PMFs) to mimic the DGD behaviour in a deployed fibre. To show the impact of a High Birefringent (HiBi) fibre in an optical network a 23 m single PMF section is coupled to the sub-emulator via a Polarization Controller (PC). Results show that the RMS-DGD of the emulator is always 31 ps which is close to that given by the HiBi section. Simultaneous adjustments in the maximum and minimum values of the DGD statistics are also achieved.
