Abstract

The effect of birefringent disorder on the bit error rate (BER) in an optical fiber telecommunication system subject to amplifier noise may lead to extreme outages, related to anomalously large BER values. We analyze the probability distribution function of BER for various strategies of polarization mode dispersion compensation. A compensation method is proposed that is capable of more efficient extreme suppression of outages, which leads to substantial improvement of the fiber system performance.
