Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a novel technique allowing monitoring the chromatic dispersion or the polarization-mode dispersion characteristics of the information within the optical channel. The technique is based upon mapping of the parameters that are to be monitored into measurements of the required multicasting or the variable attenuation of an optical switch and the minimal readout at the detector.
