Paper Abstract

In this paper a spectral crosstalk monitoring technique is proposed and demonstrated. The technique is based on optically perform a real-time continuous Fourier Transform (OFT) comprising the whole set of transmitted wavelengths. This approach does not require to stop the channel operation. Once the spectral information has been brought to time domain, the basic parameters as amplitude (channel power) or central wavelength can be evaluated. This technique is theoretically developed and demonstrated in a three channel DWDM system at 10 GBit/s channel bitrate in a proof-of-concept experiment.
