A Sta­tis­ti­cal Treat­ment of Cross-Polar­iza­tion Mod­u­la­tion in DWDM Sys­tems

Jour­nal of Light­wave Tech­nol­o­gy

Abstract: Start­ing from a mod­el of ran­dom non­lin­ear polar­iza­tion rota­tions for the effect of cross-polar­iza­tion mod­u­la­tion in DWDM sys­tems, we derive the mean dis­tri­b­u­tion of the time-depen­dent polar­iza­tion states at an arbi­trary loca­tion with­in an opti­cal link. We show that this dis­tri­b­u­tion is ful­ly para­me­ter­ized by the degree of polar­iza­tion of the par­tic­u­lar wave­length chan­nel, and we derive expres­sions to approx­i­mate this para­me­ter for gen­er­al opti­cal links con­sist­ing of mul­ti­ple opti­cal­ly ampli­fied and dis­per­sion-com­pen­sat­ed spans, as well as relat­ed pow­er thresh­olds. From the ana­lyt­i­cal expres­sions we derive a method to sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the detri­men­tal effects.

Note: This is not the orig­i­nal paper avail­able on IEE­EX­plore. The JLT ras­ter­izes all for­mu­las and graphs in their PDFs, which looks less than nice. This is my orig­i­nal sub­mis­sion with scal­able math and fig­ures, aug­ment­ed by the JLT pub­li­ca­tion data. The con­tents is exact­ly the same, but the lay­out may vary some­what.
