Abstract

We simulated the nonlinear transmission penalties induced through cross-phase modulation related depolarization in 2×10 Gb/s polarization-multiplexed (POLMUX) transmission. We find that launching adjacent wavelength-division-multiplexed channels with a 180° relative state of polarization shift results in a significant decrease in nonlinear transmission penalties and allows for longer distance POLMUX transmission.
