Demonstration of DP-16QAM WDM link with in-line nonlinearity compensation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOtherpeer-review


We demonstrate in-line nonlinearity compensation (NLC) of a 5-channel dual-polarization 16-QAM signal using opto-electronic sub-systems called total intensity-directed phase modulators (TID-PMs). NLC using a TID-PM placed before each span in an 800 km link improves the signal quality, Q, of the center channel by 0.4 dB at the optimum launch power.
