Why Coherent Detection Systems May Fail at Compensating for Polarization Mode Dispersion

White Papers

This white paper, co-authored by EXFO and General Photonics (an expert in lab measurements), takes a close look at coherent detection systems, examining various factors capable of affecting their performance and causing them to be ineffective at compensating for polarization mode dispersion. This paper also covers PMD-related tests that can be performed in the lab to optimize algorithms and circuitry, as well as tests that can be carried out in the field to identify PMD issues and reduce their frequency.
