Abstract

We investigate the effect of cross-phase modulation in wavelength-division-multiplexed polarization-modulation lightwave systems. Analytical expression for the Q factor penalty in terms of signal power, the number of channels, and other parameters are derived. The theory is compared with numerical experiments.
