Abstract

Single-section polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensators with either a fixed- or variable differential group delay (DGD) element were analyzed using multiple importance sampling. The fiber model used 80 birefringent sections with the coarse step method, which reproduced first- and higher-order PMD distortions. The results show that there is little advantage in using a variable DGD element and that the DGD at the central frequency of the channel after compensation is not a good feedback parameter for PMD compensators. The results can be applied to 40 Gbit/s systems by scaling down the time quantities by a factor of four.
