Experiments and numerical simulation demonstrate the validity of wavelength-interleaving (WI) transmission for reducing the penalty induced by polarization dependent loss (PDL) through the method of extreme value statistics. It is confirmed that applying the WI technique across n (n>1) channels can effectively reduce PDL-induced Q-penalty or outage probability.
