Telecommunication networks spanning large areas are subject to various failures, such as natural disasters, operation errors, and malicious attacks. Disaster failures (DFs) are those, which can lead to a large-area malfunction and degrade the performance of a backbone telecom mesh network.

We analytically studied the block length effect (BLE) of decision-aided maximum likelihood (DA ML) carrier phase estimation in coherent optical phase-modulated systems. The results agree well with the trends found using extensive Monte Carlo simulations. In order to eliminate the BLE and accurately recover the carrier phase, an adaptive decision-aided (DA) receiver is proposed that does not requir... View full abstract»

The objective of this paper is to investigate the polarizing properties of the photonic crystal fiber with two high-index cladding defects. Using an intuitive field-distribution model, we demonstrate the origin of polarizing based on the coupling effects between the core and the defects. Considerably differential confinement losses and relatively broad operation bandwidths are achieved for the two... View full abstract»

Silicon microring resonator has been recognized as a competitive structure for the electro-optic modulator due to its potential for high-density integration. There are two silicon-ring-based modulation methods: push-pull coupling modulation and index modulation. Previous investigations show that the push-pull coupling modulation seems to outperform the index modulation because of its ultralarge op... View full abstract»

## Aims & Scope

The Journal of Lightwave Technology is comprised of original contributions, both regular papers and letters, covering work in all aspects of optical guided-wave science, technology, and engineering. Manuscripts are solicited which report original theoretical and/or experimental results which advance the technological base of guided-wave technology. Tutorial and review papers are by invitation only. Topics of interest include the following: fiber and cable technologies, active and passive guided-wave componentry (light sources, detectors, repeaters, switches, fiber sensors, etc.); integrated optics and optoelectronics; and systems, subsystems, new applications and unique field trials. System oriented manuscripts should be concerned with systems which perform a function not previously available, out-perform previously established systems, or represent enhancements in the state of the art in general.
