This paper investigates properties of polar codes that can be potentially useful in real-world applications. We start with analyzing the performance of finite-length polar codes over the binary erasure channel BEC, while assuming belief propagation as the decoding method. We provide a stopping set analysis for the factor graph of polar codes, where we find the size of the minimum stopping set. We also find the girth of the graph for polar codes. Our analysis along with bit error rate BER simulations demonstrate that finite-length polar codes show superior error floor performance compared to the conventional capacity-approaching coding techniques. In order to take advantage from this property while avoiding the shortcomings of polar codes, we consider the idea of combining polar codes with other coding schemes. We propose a polar code-based concatenated scheme to be used in Optical Transport Networks OTNs as a potential real-world application. Comparing against conventional concatenation techniques for OTNs, we show that the proposed scheme outperforms the existing methods by closing the gap to the capacity while avoiding error floor, and maintaining a low complexity at the same time.
