AB Symbol synchronization has a cardinal role in high speed optical fiber communication systems. Accurate symbol synchronization is essential for reliable reception of data, whereas an erroneous synchronization mechanism can severely deteriorate the quality of the received signals and thus increase the bit error rate of the communication system.<br><br>
