Electronic chromatic dispersion compensation employing maximum-likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) has recently been the topic of extensive research and a range of commercial products. It is well known that MLSE provides a considerable benefit for amplitude modulated modulation formats such as on-off keying (OOK) and optical duobinary. However, when applied to optical phase modulation formats, such as differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) and differential quadrature phase-shift keying (DQPSK… CONTINUE READING
