The second-order polarization mode dispersion (PMD) was interacted with a nonlinearly-induced chirp to reduce the penalty due to PMD below what it would be in the absence of PMD. Results suggest that there is an advantage to be gained by dynamically changing the input state of the signal light to maximize the eye opening.
