Original Article


In this paper, the statistical distributing and magnitude of the first and the second-order PMD (polarization mode dispersion) vectors are evaluated and the filters control PMD effects also are analyzed on DMS (dispersion-managed soliton) links. Firstly, the so-called coarse-step approach is applied to the DMS links. The PMD statistical characteristics of the first and the second-order are simulated and the evolutions of energy and mean square of time displacement of DMS two polarization modes are gotten. Secondly, The DMS transmission of filter control with the conventional model of PMD is analyzed by Varitional method, from which the evolving rules of characteristically DMS parameters are obtained and the stability of filter control the DMS transmission are investigated. The results are not only very useful to simplify the measurement of the second-order PMD and instructively reveal degree of PMD effects in DMS systems, but also give that condition of stability of filter control PMD in DMS systems.
