(b) Optical spectrum after the carrier extraction stage; (Tx: transmitter, PC: polarization controller, Att: attenuator, PD: photodiode, Rx: receiver). (c) Optical spectrum at the input of the 2nd HNLF. (d) Optical spectrum at the output of the 2nd HNLF (point D) when both channels are locked either at the maximum or minimum phase sensitive gain state of the PSA. (e) Optical spectrum at the output of the 2nd HNLF (point D) when the channels are locked at different phase sensitive gain states of the PSA

Receiver sensitivity penalty (@ BER: 10−9), with respect to back-to-back performance, measured for both channels at the output of the carrier extraction stage as a function of the pump-to-signal power ratio as appears at the same output. Penalty less than 0.5 dB is achieved when the power ratio becomes larger than 3 dB.

Receiver sensitivity penalty or improvement with respect to back-to-back performance measured for both channels at the output of the PSA, (a) as a function of the pump-to-pump power ratio for undistorted channels at the PSA input as well as when they have experienced 3 dB penalty due to phase distortion, (b) as a function of the pump-to-signal power ratio for undistorted channels at the PSA inputs well as when they have experienced 3 dB penalty due to phase distortion.
