—Interferometric crosstalk, arising from the detection of undesired signals at the same nominal wavelength, may introduce large power penalties and bit-error rate (BER) floor significantly restricting the scalability of optical networks. In this paper, interferometric crosstalk reduction in optical wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) networks by phase(More)
—In this letter, we report an experimental study of mit-igation of optical homodyne crosstalk by phase scrambling. This mitigation is obtained by frequency shifting the signal-crosstalk beating noise power out of the receiver bandwidth. An increased tolerance to crosstalk of 7 and 5 dB is measured in a 2.5-Gb/s link of 100 and 200 km of standard single mode(More)
