Abstract

We propose a feed-forward polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensator with three segments that is capable of compensating for the first- and second-order PMD in a transmission fiber. All control parameters are analytically obtained by the PMD concatenated rules. The influence of all possible perturbations on the compensation is investigated with Monte Carlo simulations. The main advantage of our PMD compensation module over the models reported so far is that it shows excellent robustness to all possible perturbations.
