Online digital compensation of pump dithering induced phase and amplitude distortions in transmission links with cascaded fibre-optical parametric amplifiers


We present an advanced online digital signal processing (DSP) method for correcting the phase and amplitude distortions caused by the phase modulation of the pump source and its interaction with the dispersive fibre channel in transmission systems using cascaded fibre-optical parametric amplifiers. The proposed algorithm is numerically demonstrated to achieve significant (up to 3.7 dB for a four-tone pump-phase modulation scheme) Q2-factor performance improvement over conventional DSP in 16 quadrature-amplitude modulation signal transmission.
