In this paper we present a novel approach allowing cancellation of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) using a technique involving periodic polarization modulation, passing the optical signal through a polarizer and then sampling it. Digital post processing following the optical polarization modulation allows significant attenuation of the PMD component in the bit stream. Numerical and experimental verification is presented.
