Two variations of the LMS algorithm are proposed to cancel received linear crosstalk in dense WDM networks. Analysis and simulations show that with the addition of a few photodetectors, channel spacing requirements can be reduced by over 50 percent. Simulations using a demultiplexer with Gaussian bandpass characteristics show that a 2.5 dB signal-to-crosstalk-plus-noise ratio can be increased to over 35 dB. The decision-directed algorithm will work with OOK data or any intensity modulation scheme which uses the absence of light as one symbol. The decision-directed algorithm makes assumptions on the desired laser frequency so it can accommodate only limited laser drift. A second cancellation algorithm uses pilot tones added to each laser signal in order to cancel the crosstalk. It will work with analog or digital intensity-modulated data and will automatically configure itself to account for laser drift. Both algorithms are blind in that they do not require training sequences for initialization. Analysis shows that weights derived from pilot tones are nearly optimum for canceling crosstalk for the data. Simulations of both algorithms are presented. Finally both algorithms are shown to be capable of canceling nonlinear beating terms
