In this paper we demonstrate the development of an adjustable and compact polarization mode dispersion (PMD) emulator device, based on piezoelectric actuators that squeezes a defined pieces of an Hi-Bi fiber. Using this device, the first and second order PMD (SOPMD) can be reproduced in a controlled and compact way, allowing its use as a reliable metrological reference for PMD compensators and for the study of several polarizations phenomena that can represent impairments to the high data transmission networks. This emulator was used to perform an analysis of the correlation between the PMD and SOPMD under different climate chamber temperature.
