Abstract

We employ a modified version of the multicanonical algorithm to evaluate the system penalties and outage probabilities of different polarization-mode dispersion compensators. The procedure determines the optimal operating conditions for each compensator architecture far more efficiently than the standard Monte Carlo algorithm.
