Title: Polarization-sensitive linear optical sampling for characterization of polarization-multiplexed QPSK
Published: March 20, 2009
Abstract: We describe polarization-sensitive phase-referenced linear optical sampling for measuring polarization, amplitude, and phase of a high speed optical waveform. With a single measurement, we simultaneously measure both orthogonal polarization channels of 2×10 GB/s polarization-multiplexed QPSK.
