Abstract
In this letter, we report an experimental study of mitigation of optical ho modyne crosstalk by phase scrambling. This mitigation is obtained by freque ncy shifting the signal-crosstalk beating noise power out of the receiver b andwidth. An increased tolerance to crosstalk of 7 and 5 dB is measured in a 2.5-Gb/s link of 100 and 200 km of standard single mode fiber, respective ly. This result indicates the feasibility of optical networking in the LAN/ MAN domain, by tolerating the relatively high crosstalk levels of present o ptical switching technology. Our experiment is in good agreement with theor etical results.
