Integrated-optical All-Pass Filters are of interest for their potential compactness and economy of production. For broadband applications, the number of APFs involved can be as large as 50. To find optima for all the large number of parameters involved, we need a fast and efficient algorithm based on recursive equations. APF design algorithms based on complex cepstrum are proposed in digital signal processing. In this paper, we enhance these algorithms to efficiently fit the differential phase profile required for in-line broadband Polarization Mode Dispersion and Polarization Dependent Loss compensation.
