The polarization mode dispersion (PMD) monitoring system is the key integral part of an adaptive PMD compensator. The degree of polarization (DOP) ellipsoid obtained by using a polarization scrambler can be used as either a feedback or feedforward monitoring signal for automatic polarization mode dispersion compensation. Generally, more than several thousands of sampling data of states of polarization (SOP) must be collected to insure getting a correct DOP ellipsoid. This would result in an unacceptable time consuming for adaptive PMD compensation. In this paper, for the first time, we introduce the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm in determining the real-time DOP ellipsoid with high precision, requiring only 100 sampling data of SOPs. Experimental results confirm that the PSO algorithm is effective for ellipsoid data fitting with high precision within 250ms using our hardware environment.
