Paper Abstract

A new waveplate model of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is proposed. Using finite number of polarization maintaining fiber (PMF) sections in the new model, it can generates any differential group delay (DGD) values, while the conventional model produces zero possibility beyond certain DGD range. Importance-sampling technique is used to simulate the DGD probability density at large DGD range. Simulation results show that the DGD probability density function generated by the new model is Maxwellian even when the probability density is as low as 10-35.
