Abstract

The optical return-to-zero differential phase-shift keying system is analyzed to determine the accuracy of the differential phase Q method in estimating the bit-error rate (BER). It is found that it consistently underestimates the BER though it successfully predicts the qualitative behavior of single-channel and wavelength-division-multiplexed systems for back-to-back and point-to-point configurations. A simple modification reduced the underestimation and produced accurate results.
