Paper Abstract

The impact of XPM on the 1st-order PMD compensator is numerically simulated for a two-channel WDM system with the bit rate in each channel of 40-Gbit/s. Simulation results show that a 1st-order PMDC does not change the distribution of the remaining EOP in a single channel system; but in a WDM system, the EOP distribution will disperses over the whole EOP range and the occurrence probability of larger EOPs increases heavily due to the XPM effect when a 1st-order PMD compensator is used to compensate for the DGD of the preceding fiber link. Furthermore, in WDM systems, the larger the input average power in the pump channel, the severer the impact of XPM on 1st-order PMD compensation is. When the XPM-inducing input average power reaches 0dBm, the impact of XPM on the 1st-order PMD compensator is visible.
