The use of genetic algorithm (GA) to simplify the structures of artificial neural network-based modulation format identification is proposed in next-generation dynamic and heterogeneous fiber-optic networks. Simulation results show that with 80 asynchronous amplitude histogram bins, by virtue of GA, the identification error rate decreases from 4.24 to 1.04 %.
In this paper, a novel data-aided linear fitting-based (DALF-based) blind phase estimation method for coherent optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (CO-OFDM) is proposed. Similar to our previous work done in the pilot-based blind phase estimation method, the pilot subcarriers are used to transmit unknown amplitude modulation signals in order to improve spectral efficiency. But the so-called...
