Paper Abstract

In this paper, an overview of promising solutions for new modulation formats in optical WDM-transmission is presented and some recent results are summarized. We compare these formats with the standard conventional intensity modulation scheme. For real world applications it is necessary that these formats not only offer bandwidth reduction but also prove sufficient performance with respect to interference and intermodulation from adjacent channels, non-linear fibre properties, chromatic and polarization mode dispersion and noise resistance. Last but not least the implementation-effort at high speed must comply with economic constraints.
