Abstract
We investigate the nonlinear tolerance of coherent detected 50 Gbit/s dual-polarization binary-phase-shift-keying (DPBPSK), 100 Gbit/s dual-polarization quaternary-phase-shift-keying (DP-QPSK), and 200 Gbit/s dual-polarization 16-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (DP-16-QAM) for single carrier with pulse shaping and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). The performance of these systems is compared and tested in two different scenarios: dispersion managed and unmanaged links. The results show that employing return-to-zero with 50 % of duty cycle (RZ50) as pulse shaping has a superior performance, especially in dispersion unmanaged links.
