Abstract
A kind of blind polarization demultiplexing algorithm based on low-complexity and fast-converging independent component analysis (ICA) for quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) coherent optical communications systems is proposed. The polarization demultiplexing is achieved by maximizing the signal’s non-Gaussianity measured by the information theoretic quantity of negentropy. We demonstrate that some approximate nonlinear functions can be substituted for the negentropy and this greatly reduces the computational complexity. An adaptive gradient optimization algorithm and a fast-converging quasi-Newton algorithm are employed to maximize the negentropy. The numerical simulation and experimental results for polarization division multiplexing quadrature phase shift keying/16QAM without neglecting polarization mode dispersion reveal that the proposed ICA demultiplexing algorithms are feasible and effective for coherent optical receivers.
