Abstract

We propose a chromatic dispersion monitoring technique by analyzing the tap coefficients in electronic dispersion equalizers using tapped delay lines without needing additional hardware. This technique is robust to varying optical signal-to-noise ratio. The successful chromatic dispersion monitoring is demonstrated by simulation and experiment.
