We demonstrate a new method to measure high-order polarization mode dispersion (PMD) using the Jones matrix exponential expansion. High-order PMD is characterized by measuring a series of characteristic matrices, which are convenient quantities for analyzing PMD effects in the time-domain. An experimental method is developed to estimate the validity range of the exponential expansion.
