Abstract—Arobust in-service estimation of fiber channel parameters from equalizer parameters of a polarization diverse coherent receiver is presented. The equations used for estimation are evolved from a theoretical fiber channel model. The theory is validated based on simulations and data from transmission experiments. Index Terms—Chromatic dispersion (CD), coherent receiver, optical performance monitoring, polarization-dependent loss (PDL), polarization-mode dispersion
