Paper Abstract

We adopt the worst channel equalization (WCE) scheme to compensate polarization mode dispersion (PMD) in wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) systems. The degree of polarization (DOP) of single state of polarization (SOP) optical signal is used as the feedback signal of the PMD compensators, and the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is used as the searching algorithm. Simulation results show that the DOP of RZ format of the worst-performance channels after compensation is greatly improved, and the PSO algorithm is successfully experienced into adaptive multi-stage PMD compensators in a 40-Gb/s optical WDM communication system. The WCE scheme is an effective way for PMD compensation in WDM system.
