Free spectral range optimization of return-to-zero differential phase shift keyed demodulation in the presence of chromatic dispersion

, : Free spectral range optimization of return-to-zero differential phase shift keyed demodulation in the presence of chromatic dispersion. Optics Express 15(11): 6817-6822

Optical differential phase shift keying is normally demodulated in a delay-line interferometer with a 1-bit delay such that the free-spectral-range of the demodulator is equal to the transmitted bitrate. We show using Karkunen-Loeve expansion simulation that free-spectral-range optimization leads to increased chromatic dispersion tolerances. The optimized delay inversely scales with the amount of chromatic dispersion such that a delay slightly shorter than the bit period increases tolerances with no adverse effect on the polarization-mode-dispersion tolerance or frequency offset penalty at the receiver.
