Influence of self- and cross-phase modulation on 40 Gbaud dual polarization DQPSK/D8PSK signals in 10 Gbit/s OOK WDM systems
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010

This paper, for the first time, investigates the nonlinear degradation of 40 Gbaud single- and dual polarization RZ-DQPSK/D8PSK signals caused by SPM and XPM-induced crosstalk from neighboring 10 Gbit/s NRZ-OOK channels in an WDM upgrade scenario. The investigations were numerically and experimentally conducted over a 320 km transmission link with three different wavelength configurations to address the impact of the walk-off length. The paper also presents the first numerical analysis of the XPM dependence on the relative state of polarization of the D8PSK with respect to the neighbors. © 2010 Optical Society of America.
