A Low-Complexity Detector for Memoryless Polarization-Multiplexed Fiber-Optical Channels

Christian Häger, Lotfollah Beygi, Erik Agrell, Pontus Johannisson, Magnus Karlsson, Alexandre Graell i Amat

A low-complexity detector is introduced for polarization-multiplexed M-ary phase shift keying modulation in a fiber-optical channel impaired by nonlinear phase noise, generalizing a previous result by Lau and Kahn for single-polarization signals. The proposed detector uses phase compensation based on both received signal amplitudes in conjunction with simple straight-line rather than four-dimensional maximum-likelihood decision boundaries.
