DTU Department of Photonics Engineering
General course objectives:
Understand and apply digital signal processing algorithms for optical communication receivers with advanced modulation formats.
Learning objectives:
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:
  • Analyze and implement algorithms for digital demodulation
  • Analyze and implement algorithms for clock recovery
  • Analyze and implement algorithms for synchronization
  • Analyze and implement algorithms for phase and frequency estimation
  • Analyze and implement algorithms for channel equalization
  • Understand the relation between the algorithms and the physical realization of the optical links
  • Knowledge of efficient implementations to be used in actual systems
  • Apply digital signal processing algorithms specifically related to the participant's ph.d. project

The main topics are: - Digital demodulation - Clock recovery - Phase recovery - Frequency estimation - Synchronization algorithms - Channel estimation and equalization The course is conducted as a reading and discussion meeting with the teachers. Assignments will be handed out to each student and discussed every course meeting. The assignments will be based on the book: Digital Communication Receivers: Synchronization, Channel Estimation, and Signal Processing by H. Meyr et al. The assignments will be chosen according to the students' needs and interests.
