Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate a reconfigurable optical tapped delay line in conjunction with coherent detection to search multiple patterns among quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) symbols in 20 Gbaud data channel and also to equalize 20 and 31 Gbaud QPSK, 20 Gbaud 8 phase shift keying (PSK), and 16 QAM signals. Multiple patterns are searched successfully on QPSK signals, and correlation peaks are obtained at the matched patterns. QPSK, 8 PSK, and 16 QAM signals are also successfully recovered after 25 km of SMF-28 with average EVMs of 8.3%, 8.9%, and 7.8%. A penalty of <1dB optical signal to noise penalty is achieved for a 20 Gbaud QPSK signal distorted by up to 400ps/nm dispersion.
