Contents and General Information

DSPO Overview
Overview "Digital Signal Processing in Optical Communications"

This course will provide practical knowledge about the design and implementation of digital-signal-processing (DSP) algorithms in optical communication systems. Topics will be introduced in lectures and applied in practical exercises in the computer lab using MATLAB. The course will cover the following topics:

  • Modulation formats, entropy, spectral efficiency, pulse shaping
  • Noise sources and statistics
  • Performance evaluation: Bit-error ratio, Q-Factor, OSNR-Penalty, Mutual Information, Monte Carlo Simulation
  • Modeling systems with intensity modulation and direct detection
  • Digital coherent receivers (carrier recovery, timing recovery, chromatic dispersion compensation, adaptive equalization)
  • Impact and compensation of chromatic dispersion and polarization-mode dispersion
  • System impact of fiber nonlinearities

Further information about the timeline and the instructions on handing in programming exercise solutions and their grading can be downloaded here.
