    Abstract: A skew compensation system for a coherent optical communication network includes a transmitter and a receiver in operable communication with an optical transport medium of a coherent optical network. The transmitter includes a first transmitter-side tunable delay line configured to delay transmission of a first signal by a first skew amount, thereby producing a pre-compensated first signal. The receiver includes a first receiver-side tunable delay line configured to delay transmission of the pre-compensated first signal to a digital signal processor (DSP) of the receiver by a second skew amount, thereby producing a final signal that is both pre-compensated and post-compensated (i.e., fully compensated).

  • Patent number: 11146338
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for a decision directed multi-modulus searching algorithm are described. A receiver may receive an optical signal including a set of data symbols. The receiver may iteratively determine a set of centroids for demodulating the set of data symbols (e.g., as part of a training procedure). The centroids may be used to demodulate the set of data symbols according to a modulation constellation associated with the set of data symbols. The training procedure may include, for each data symbol of a subset of data symbols, assigning a centroid of the set of centroids to each data symbol and updating the set of centroids based on assigning the centroid to each data symbol. The receiver may demodulate the set of data symbols based on the updated set of centroids.
