Crosstalk Mitigation Techniques
In this chapter we describe a crosstalk mitigation or reduction technique. Crosstalk mitigation is obtained by introducing phase dithering or scrambling in optical signals. An experimental test-bed is used to verify the performance of this technique. An increased tolerance of 7 and 5 dB towards optical crosstalk is achieved in a 2.5-Gbit/s link of 100 and 200 km of standard single mode fiber, respectively.
