Using three programmable DGD elements, a high speed polarization mode dispersion (PMD) emulator with tunable statistics and good stability, and repeatability, was demonstrated. This technique also enables deterministic control of the angles between the PMD vectors of each section. By incorporating in-line polarimeters, a repeatable lookup-table of DGD and 2nd order PMD states can be created. The approach of using polarimeters to control the polarization coupling between the sections could be useful for applications requiring deterministic control of the PMD vectors between sections.
