Abstract

Nonlinear tolerance of PDM-OFDM transmission with in-line dispersion compensation, e.g. legacy ultra-long-haul submarine links, is substantially improved by a Volterra nonlinear compensation scheme, baud-rate sampled, with tolerable O(NlogN)complexity, effectively mitigating intra-channel FWM/XPM decision-feedback error propagation.
