We show that unscented Kalman filters can be used to mitigate local oscillator phase noise and to compensate carrier frequency offset in coherent single-carrier optical communication systems. A parallel processing architecture implementing the unscented Kalman filter is proposed, improving upon a previous parallelized linear Kalman filter (LKF) implementation.
