Polarization independent optical injection locking for carrier recovery in optical communication systems
Journal article, 2017

An optical injection locking (IL) system that is independent of the incoming signal's polarization is demonstrated for carrier recovery in coherent optical communication systems. A sub-system that enables polarization independence is discussed and experimentally verified. The system is tested over a 20-km test field link using a broadlinewidth laser (40 MHz), and shows the suppression of phase noise when using the carrier recovered by injection locking as the local oscillator.
