Abstract

As an extension to a previous paper, this paper describes the optimization of a second-order, feedforward polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) compensation scheme by reducing its degrees of freedom (DOF) by two. The new design is optimal in the sense that the number of DOF used is the same as the minimal number of DOF required. Also derived is a set of constraint equations that govern the choice of various system parameters.
