Analysis of Polarization Mode Dispersion in Fibers and its Mitigation using an Optical Compensation Technique


The maximum channel density for digital transmission can be achieved by increase the bit rate. When the bit rate cross the 2.5Gbps , the PMD degrade the transmission characteristics. PMD occurs in single mode fiber and because of PMD it impossible to transmit data reliability at high speed. This effects results the widening the pulses and reduce the capacity of transmission of the fiber. This work analyzes the effect of PMD in optical fiber in one hindered km link fiber. The eye diagram, Q value and bit rate for analyzing the PMD. Also an optical compensation technique by which the effect of PMD can be reduced is also analyzed. bit error rate can be achieved by simulating with OptSim 5.3, which includes the algorithms to guarantee the maximum possible accuracy and correct results.
