Signal Constellation Design for Cross-Phase Modulation Dominated Channels

In this paper, we introduce an optimal signal constellation design algorithm suitable for wavelength-division-multiplexed systems dominated by cross-phase modulation (XPM), which is called XPM-OSCD. Additionally, a corresponding demodulation scheme is also proposed in order to better compensate for the nonlinear phase errors. In this scheme, the cumulative… CONTINUE READING
