Abstract

We present an efficient channel estimation method for coherent optical OFDM (CO-OFDM) based on intra-symbol frequency-domain averaging (ISFA), and systematically study its robustness against transmission impairments such as optical noise, chromatic dispersion (CD), polarization-mode dispersion (PMD), polarization-dependent loss (PDL), and fiber nonlinearity. Numerical simulations are performed for a 112-Gb/s polarization-division multiplexed (PDM) CO-OFDM signal, and the ISFAbased channel estimation and the subsequent channel compensation are found to be highly robust against these transmission impairments in typical optical transport systems.
