Lu Bin, "Simulation of optical fiber communication system with polarization mode dispersion," Master's thesis, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of New Brunswick, (Fredericton, NB, Canada), Sept. 2000.


This thesis is about the simulation of optical fiber communication systems with the effect of PMD (Polarization Mode Dispersion) and the application of adaptive channel equalizers, CPI (Cross Polarization Interference) cancellers and echo cancellers which are used to mitigate PMD.

The basic structure of this system is that two QAM signals are transmitted through a long fiber with PMD and they are received by a coherent receiver which consists of adaptive electrical channel equalizers and adaptive electrical CPI cancellers. The echo in a bidirectional transmission system is studied and adaptive echo cancellers are used to cancel it.

The objective of this thesis is to create the system structure, to simulate the optical fiber channel with PMD, to simulate the adaptive channel equalizers, CPI cancellers and echo cancellers and to evaluate the system performance.
