Abstract

The comparison of different polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensator configurations was done based on outage probability. Each of the configurations performed an all-optical compensation and used the degree of polarization (DOP) of the compensated signal as a feedback parameter. The uncompensated and compensated bit error rate (BER) for each of the PMD compensator configuration was also plotted.
