Paper Abstract

A possibility to estimate chromatic dispersion from telecom signals in an OOK optical communication link with non-zero chirp modulator without resorting to phase measurements is presented. The model relating intensities at the transmitter and receiver sides is built for a link affected by chromatic dispersion and estimation procedure is proposed. Validity of the method is shown in a laboratory experiment.
