Abstract

We demonstrate a method for experimentally characterizing the second order statistics of nonlinear interference noise (NLIN) as an intersymbol interference (ISI) process. The method enables measurement of the properties of high-order ISI coefficients, which have been largely overlooked in the past. The ability of measuring these statistics is imperative for designing effective NLIN mitigation schemes. The variance, temporal correlation times, and cross correlations of the various ISI coefficients are evaluated in several system implementations.
