Abstract

Conventional and advanced modulation formats that simultaneously modulate two or more of the optical attributes of phase, amplitude, and polarization and/or utilize observation intervals longer than two chips (time slots) are designed by using a unified interpretation as signaling by means of generalized Stokes parameters. In particular, the new paradigm is applied to the recently introduced multichip extension of optical differential phase shift keying.
