Paper Abstract

Based on the modeling of considering polarization mode dispersion (PMD) and polarization-dependent loss (PDL) simultaneously, the impact ofPDL on high-speed PMD compensation systems is discussed in this paper. The simulation result shows that for the 4OGbit/s NRZ systems being PMD value 8ps, if the PDL value of single device increases to 0.7dB, the infkience of PDL on the systems performance is obvious. Furthermore, if it reaches to 1.5dB, the outage probability of eye-opening penalty of PMD compensation system will increase from 10-6 (in case no PDL effect) to 10-4.Therefore, it is necessary to considering the impact of PDL on systems performance in the PMD compensation systems design ifthe PDL value ofdevice reaches to 0.7dB or beyond
