We theoretically model the polarization properties of an optical fiber by the Jones matrix of an elliptical birefringent plate. The properties of this model are investigated and lead to develop experimental methods to extract the parameters of the model for a real fiber. A magneto-optical method that measures the beat length of the fiber is also presented and gives a more complete description of the fiber. Wavelength dependence of the parameters characterizing the fiber is finally experimentally investigated.
