The “Birefringence” view shows you plots of:

  • Delta Beta – Difference between the propagation constants of the two
    orthogonally polarized modes.
  • DGD – Differential Group Delay (DGD) due to fiber birefringence vs. wavelength.

To access this view do one of the following steps:

Step Action
1 Select the “Birefringence” tab in the “Views” window
2 Select “Views/Birefringence” on the “View” menu
