Using an interferometric detection technique with AC modulation for searching the interference fringe signal, highly accurate polarization mode dispersion (PMD) measurement with about 0.003 ps/m resolution has been developed, and the PMD measurement in a 60 km-long installed optical submarine cabled fiber is presented. Also, fiber length dependence of PMD and comparison of the interferometric PMD measurement with other wavelength scanning PMD method are described.
