Paper Abstract

Theoretical calculations are made on the basis of relationship between electrical power and differential group delay (DGD). Curves are given representing the change of electrical power with DGD, central frequency of electrical signal and power ratio γ between principal states of polarization (PSPs). Experimental results confirming the theoretical calculations are also presented for voltage V changing with DGD. Factors affecting the feedback signals are proposed and means are given to make the fluctuations smaller. Eye patterns show the effectiveness of a PMD compensation prototype for a 10Gbit/s pseudo random sequence. Receiver sensitivity under 3 different bit error rates are also measured using BER measuring equipment. Comparisons of results under different conditions are also made, confirming the results and deterioration caused by the simulator is well compensated for by using the compensation system.
