Techniques for noise and nonlinear impairments compensation in CO-OFDM transmission

Le, Son Thai and Turitsyn, Sergei K. (2015). Techniques for noise and nonlinear impairments compensation in CO-OFDM transmission. IN: UNSPECIFIED Jaworski, Marek and Marciniak, Marian (eds) Warsaw (PL): IEEE.


In this paper, we discuss recent advances in digital signal processing techniques for compensation of the laser phase noise and fiber nonlinearity impairments in coherent optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CO-OFDM) transmission. For laser phase noise compensation, we focus on quasi-pilot-aided (QPA) and decision-directed-free blind (DDF-blind) phase noise compensation techniques. For fiber nonlinearity compensation, we discuss in details the principle and performance of the phase-conjugated pilots (PCP) scheme.
