In this paper, we theoretically and experimentally demonstrated the residual chromatic dispersion (CD) monitoring of 100-Gbit/s carrier suppress return-to-zero differential quadrature phase shift keying (CS-RZ DQPSK) signals by evaluating the asymmetry ratio of delay tap asynchronous sampling. This scheme can easily differentiate the positive and negative residual CD of the fiber link. The resolution of this scheme is better than 8ps/nm and the measurable range is around ± 24ps/nm for 100Gbit/s CS-RZ DQPSK signals. We can also simultaneously realize both signed CD monitoring and demodulation of CS-RZ DQPSK signal based on only one demodulator.
