Paper Abstract

In this paper, we analyzed the system power penalty induced by the coherent crosstalk components as the dominant crosstalk channel in WDM-OXC, and present a simple expression, which can be readily calculated by popular software. We also present an expression of the power penalty when both incoherent and coherent crosstalks are presented. The simulation results show that by introducing a bit pattern mismatch method in a WDM-OXC, the extra penalty caused by the coherent crosstalk can be distinctively suppressed.
