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 mitigation 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)
