Abstract

We discuss the performance of a multichannel 2×10 Gbit/s polarization-multiplexed differential phase-shift keying transmission system. Through simulations and transmission experiments we find that, despite the constant power envelope of non-return-to-zero phase-shift keying modulation formats, polarization multiplexing strongly reduces the nonlinear tolerance and transmission performance at a 2×10 Gbit/s line rate with multichannel transmission. This results in a 10 dB power penalty when comparing single- and nine-channel transmission. Additionally, multichannel impairments in differential phase-shift keying and on-off keying are compared for 2×10 Gbit/s polarization-multiplexed transmission.
