Abstract

We report on a novel technique to compensate for all-order polarization-mode dispersion. By means of this technique, based on a suitable combination of phase modulation and group-velocity dispersion, we compensated for as much as 60 ps of differential group delay that affected a 10Gbit/s return-to-zero data stream.

Diagram of the Fourier transform device. The pair of pulses originally spaced by 2τ0 experiences first a parabolic phase modulation φt that induces linear frequency shift and then a dispersion that permits the recombination of the pair at distance L=-1/2Kβ2.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Probability that the eye-diagram closure results are larger than the corresponding value on the abscissa. The numerical simulation was performed with a RZ signal composed of a 10Gbit/s stream of 35-ps-long pulses propagating through 6× 100-km spans of step-index fiber with 90% dispersion compensation at each amplification stage. The PMD values (in ps/km1/2) are 1 (circles), 1.15 (crosses), and 1.25 (diamonds). The groups of solid and dashed curves refer to the cases without and with the PMDC at the receiver.

(a) Experimental setup for the simulation of PMD in a 10Gbit/s RZ transmission system. A Mach–Zehnder modulator driven by a pattern generator provides a pseudorandom binary sequence 10Gbit/s stream. To emulate system PMD we send the RZ stream to a programmable polarization (Pol.) controller and then to a DGD device with selectable delay. The emerging signal is sent through the PMDC, the details of which are shown in (b).

10Gbit/s RZ bit-error rate (BER) measurements. The dashed and solid curves refer to the cases without and with the inclusion of the PMDC, respectively. The values of the programmed delays are DGD’s of 0 (circles), 40 ps (squares), and 50 ps (triangles).
