We investigate penalties induced by polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) and the interaction between PMD and fiber nonlinearity on polarization-multiplexed transmission through both simulations and experiment. We find that controlling the phase difference between polarization channels can enhance the PMD tolerance in polarization-multiplexed transmission.
