The performance of a new APSK receiver is analyzed using numerical simulation. The proposed receiver eliminates the penalty caused by SPM-induced phase-shift of optical pulses by employing three sub-modules and an amplitude-pattern controlled switch for each DPSK tributary. The interplay between SPM, IXPM, and XPM determines the performance of the proposed receiver for single-channel and WDM transmission.
