Two-dimensional statistics and Q-penalty performance under the combination of two major impairments induced by polarization-dependent loss, namely level imbalance and loss of orthogonality between polarization-multiplexed tributaries, for a polarization-division-multiplexing digital coherent transmission at over 100-Gb/s are presented for the first time to estimate the outage probability needed for designing the system.
