Three different first order polarization mode dispersion compensation techniques are compared in terms of outage probability, calculated for a fixed value of sensitivity penalty at the receiver, with the purpose of evaluating their impact on 10 Gbit/s communication system performance. A numerical approach is followed for different conditions of polarization mode dispersion and for varying compensation parameters, looking for the best operating point of compensation.
