Abstract

The application of importance sampling (IS) to polarization mode dispersion (PMD) emulators consisting of a concatenation of birefringent sections with Maxwellian-distributed lengths, was studied. Using the IS techniques the emulator with Maxwellian length sections was compared to fixed length emulators. It was found that emulators with Maxwellian lengths offered less benefits as compared to fixed-length emulators. The results show that because of large reduction in the number of samples due to IS and better tail distributions with Maxwellian lengths, the combination of these two techniques results in an efficient method for the calculation of PMD-induced effects.
