Abstract

The importance sampling was applied to Monte Carlo simulations of polarization mode dispersion (PMD)-induced transmission effects. The PMD was described by vectors, the magnitude of which is the differential group delay. When a variable-delay PMD compensator was used, the pulse broadening was strongly correlated with the residual second-order PMD of the whole system.
