The birefrigence of real-life optical fibers causes pulse broadening in fiber-optic communication systems. This phenomenon is known as polarization mode dispersion (PMD). PMD has recently emerged as one of the critical concerns in achieving high-performance optical fiber transmission systems. A major part of the thesis is devoted to the study of PMD, together with chromatic dispersion (CD), in high bit-rate optical fiber communication systems. A new approach has been presented in this thesis for the description of PMD and determining its effect on pulse and continuous RF signals.
