Higher-order PMD compensation using a polarization controller and phase modulator in the transmitter

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Polarization-mode-dispersion (PMD) has emerged as a key limitation in: (i) 10-Gbit/s systems that use older legacy fiber, and (ii) 40-Gbit/s systems that use even the newest types of fiber due to the non-zero PMD that appears in most in-line components. Moreover, PMD is characterized as being a random stochastic process for which the system degrading effects change with many environmental conditions.1–2 For such systems, dynamic PMD compensators would be needed to reduce the probability of network outage.
