Paper Abstract

We propose and analyze a novel binary coherent optical transmission scheme based on continuous polarization modulation. Its bandwidth efficiency is better than that of both PSK and MSK. The signal spectrum is independent of the polarization transformations along the fiber. Its phase-noise tolerance is similar to FSK and its sensitivity is 3 dB better than that of single-filter FSK.
