Abstract

In this paper, we outline the design of signal processing (DSP) algorithms with blind estimation for 100-G coherent optical polarization-diversity receivers in single-carrier systems. As main degrading optical propagation effects, we considered chromatic dispersion (CD), polarization-mode dispersion (PMD), polarization-dependent loss (PDL), and cross-phase modulation (XPM). In the context of this work, we developed algorithms to increase the robustness of the single DSP receiver modules against the aforesaid propagation effects. In particular, we first present a new and fast algorithm to perform blind adaptive CD compensation through frequency-domain equalization. This low complexity equalizer component inherits a highly precise estimation of residual dispersion independent from previous or subsequent blocks. Next, we introduce an original dispersion-tolerant timing recovery and illustrate the derivation of blind polarization demultiplexing, capable to operate also in condition of high PDL. At last, we propose an XPM-mitigating carrier phase recovery as an extension of the standard Viterbi–Viterbi algorithm.
