Abstract
This paper introduces a new chromatic dispersion monitoring technique using optical asynchronous sampling and double sideband filtering. We present simulation results that relate chromatic dispersion with the ratio between the maximum amplitude of the signal and the average optical output power, yielding in a method which is power transparent. We also show theoretical investigation and theoretical results that prove the approach used in this paper.
