Abstract

We give a compact theory of the polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) in spun fiber. For periodically spun fibers, the theory shows that the asymptotic behavior of the PMD can be predicted by a simple procedure from the two-dimensional Fourier transform of the birefringence correlation function.
