OFC and ECOC 2016 Improving the Tolerance to Noise in the Transmission of Optical Communication Signals

Southampton’s work on Nonlinearity mitigation in Transmission using Optical Phase Conjugation (OPC) was presented at IEEE/OSA OFC 2016. The experiments used WDM signals carrying 10 GBaud data encoded using 16-QAM and 64-QAM modulation formats, which were transmitted over 400km of the Aurora2 network. An optical phase conjugator was installed at the mid-point of the transmission, which gave rise to performance improvement through mitigation of the nonlinear phase noise generated during transmission

This work follows up from OPC experiments on NDFIS that were reported in the previous period. They have attracted significant attention from the community and have resulted in two invited papers at OFC’2016 and ECOC’2016.
