Abstract
We numerically investigate the nonlinear transmission performance of 112  Gb/s coherent transmission systems using polarization multiplexed quadrature-phase-shift-keying (QPSK), offset QPSK (OQPSK) and minimum-shift-keying (MSK) formats, and compare the fiber nonlinear tolerances of the three modulation formats. Simulation results show that in both single channel and wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) systems, OQPSK is slightly more resistant to fiber nonlinearities than QPSK, and MSK has the best fiber nonlinear tolerance. The advantage of MSK format over QPSK and OQPSK is particularly notable in WDM systems. When digital back propagation (DBP) is used in the digital coherent receiver for intra-channel fiber nonlinearity compensation, system performance is improved with better Q-factor, enlarged input optical power range and extended transmission distance. It is found that the use of DBP brings the largest performance improvement in QPSK system and the least performance improvement in MSK system although MSK system has better fiber nonlinear tolerance.
