The impact of PDL-induced crosstalk on 100-Gb/s POLMUX RZ-DQPSK performance is investigated both experimentally and through numerical simulations in direct detection systems. We found that RZ time-interleaving, contrary to what happens with PMD, features a strong robustness to PDL. The detrimental effect of optical narrow filtering on PDL-induced penalty is also analyzed; RZ time-interleaving still proves the best solution to deal with the PDL issue.

Abstract

The impact of PDL-induced crosstalk on 100-Gb/s POLMUX RZ-DQPSK performance is investigated both experimentally and through numerical simulations in direct detection systems. We found that RZ time-interleaving, contrary to what happens with PMD, features a strong robustness to PDL. The detrimental effect of optical narrow filtering on PDL-induced penalty is also analyzed; RZ time-interleaving still proves the best solution to deal with the PDL issue.
