We numerically demonstrate PDL mitigation by polarization-time codes with a simple decoding method, without using complicated maximum likelihood decoding. Also, we evaluate fibre nonlinear tolerance of the coded signals, and find the coded signals have slightly larger transmission penalty.

Low-Complexity, Low-PAPR Polarization-Time Code for PDL Mitigation
TLDR
A polarization-time (PT) code based on number theory forPDL mitigation has comparable PDL mitigation performance to the best PT codes reported so far, and higher tolerance to fiber nonlinearities.
Implications of Distributed Link Polarization-Dependent Loss on Bitwise Achievable Information Rates for Probabilistically Shaped and Uniform DP 64-QAM
The statistical behaviors of bitwise achievable information rates (BW AIRs) and effective signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) due to polarization-dependent loss (PDL) are experimentally characterized for
