We present a comparison of adaptive electronic PMD equalizers for coherent phase and polarizationdiversity QPSK receivers using the multicanonical Monte Carlo method . A 5-tap equalizer using the CMA sufficiently reduces the outage probability below 10 . Introduction Coherent receivers used for the detection of polarization-multiplexed (POL MUX), quadrature(More)
In coherent optical systems, apart from fiber chromatic dispersion and polarization mode dispersion, transmitter and local oscillator phase noise and intermediate frequency offset also have a significant impact on the systempsilas performance. We study, by simulation, the performance of adaptive equalization, assisted by a recursive phase noise-removing(More)
Polarization division multiplexed (PDM) quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) coherent optical systems employ blind adaptive linear electronic equalizers for polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) compensation. In this paper, we compute the performance of various adaptive, fractionally spaced, feed-forward electronic equalizers, using the outage probability as a(More)
