Paper Abstract

A half cycle 64-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) Nyquist subcarrier modulation (SCM) polarization division multiplexing (PDM) intensity modulation direct detection optical communication system is experimentally demonstrated. At the receiver, training sequences-based channel estimation and an overlap frequency domain equalization method are proposed to enhance the system performance. The experimental results show that the half cycle 64-QAM Nyquist-SCM PDM signal can be transmitted over 43-km standard single-mode fibers with a bit error rate below the forward error coding threshold of 2.4×10−2.
