We apply a polarization-time (PT) code based on number theory for PDL mitigation. The PT code has comparable PDL mitigation performance to the best PT codes reported so far, and higher tolerance to fiber nonlinearities.

PDL in Optical Links: A Model Analysis and a Demonstration of a PDL-Resilient Modulation
The New Spatially Balanced signaling, an optimal 4D modulation based on this simplified model, is designed and its performance through numerical simulations and experimentally over a transmission in a recirculating loop with in-line PDL is explored.
Tetrahedral Coding and Non-Unitary Resilience in Polarization-Multiplexed Lightwave Transmissions
The proposed modulation schemes appears to be optimal and geometrically pleasing as the second minimum distance turns out to be the object of interest and the associated vectors encode the basis of a regular tetrahedron in the affine space.
Optimization of Transmitter-Side Signal Rotations in the Presence of Laser Phase Noise
For reasonable amounts of residual phase noise, rotations based on Hadamard matrices are found to be near-optimal for transmission of 4-D signals and an increase of up to 0.25 bit per complex symbol in an achievable information rate is observed for Transmission of higher-order constellations.
Compensation of Laser Phase Noise Using DSP in Multichannel Fiber-Optic Communications
One of the main impairments that limit the throughput of fiber-optic communication systems is laser phase noise, where the phase of the laser output drifts with time. This impairment can be highly

The method of threshold exceedances is used to reliably estimate the outage probability due to per-span polarization dependent loss (PDL) using bit-wise achievable information rate (BW-AIR) data obtained using a simulation model that accurately captures the effect of PDL on both the signal and amplified spontaneous emission noise.

A construction of a space-time code based on number theory
It is shown that the new code outperforms the Alamouti code at low and high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) when the number of receive antennas N>1, and the performance improvement is further enhanced when N or the size of the constellation increases.
Accumulation of nonlinear interference noise in fiber-optic systems.
It is shown that all of the previously not understood discrepancies between the Gaussian noise model and simulations can be attributed to the omission of an important, recently reported, fourth-order noise (FON) term, that accounts for the statistical dependencies within the spectrum of the interfering channel.
