Paper Abstract

We report Nyquist-wavelength-division-multiplexed (Nyquist-WDM) seven-channel 192-Gb/s polarization-divisionmultiplexed 16-QAM transmission. The transmitter comprises high-speed digital-to-analog converters (DACs) fabricated with 0.5-μm indium phosphide (InP) heterojunction bipolar transistors and an FPGA-based multi-channel digital signal generator, and enables us to perform transmitter-side digital signal processing (DSP) for spectrally efficient WDM transmission. The transmitter generated 24-Gbaud electrical waveforms for optical 16-QAM signals with a digital pre-filter. Using low-loss and low-nonlinear pure silica core fiber, we achieved 25-GHz-spaced seven-channel 192 Gb/s transmission distance of 480 km with a spectral efficiency of 7.17 b/s/Hz.
