Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate optical performance monitoring through optical channel estimation in coherent optical OFDM systems without the need for separate monitoring devices. The monitoring results of OSNR, Q-factor, fiber chromatic dispersion, and PMD are presented. © 2008 Optical Society of America.
