Paper Abstract

The optical multilevel modulation is one of the attractive candidates to significantly increase the channel bit rate and total capacity of future optical fiber communications. We review various multilevel modulation schemes proposed to date, including our experimental results of the 8-level and 16-level APSK modulation/demodulation schemes at 10 Gsymbol/s. We also discuss the advantages and disadvantages, and future issues of the optical multilevel modulation schemes.
