Higher-order optical polarization mode dispersion compensator evaluation using Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation
Author(s): Chuanchuan Yang; Ziyu Wang

Paper Abstract

We describe how to use Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation (MCMC) to accurately estimate the outage probability of the optical communication system compensated by higher-order optical polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensators. Markov chain fiber channel samples can drastically reduce the number of simulations required to estimate the outage probability of the compensated systems to 10–6 or less. Using MCMC, the efficiency of our proposed higher-order optical PMD compensator is proved further, and the accuracy of MCMC is affirmed.
