Paper Abstract

Based on the segmented bi-refringent fiber model, the penalties due to PMD, GVD and nonlinearity effects in 4x400bit/s WDM systems is calculated by solving the coupled nonlinear Schrodinger equation in bi-refringent fiber with split-step Fourier method for different PMD values in this paper. The simulation results show that in a WDM system the outage probability for one channel is not much larger than that in other channels. For PMD compensation in WDM system it runs a dangerous risk to only compensate the worst channel at a time, and it might be necessary to compensate all channels simultaneously.
