For what is the first time to our knowledge, we study the performance of Gaussian pulse transmission over an ultrahigh polarization-mode-dispersion (PMD) fiber. In the experiment the Gaussian pulse breaks into a series of deformed pulses; this phenomenon is attributed to the walk-off of the deformed pulses caused by ultrahigh PMD. The simulation and transmission experiment were performed with fiber with a PMD coefficient of 237.95 ps/km1/2. The result of the simulation agrees well with that of the experiment.
