Comparison of set-partitioned two-polarization 16qam formats with pdm-qpsk and pdm-8qam for optical transmission systems with error-correction coding
Paper in proceedings, 2012

We compare set partitioned two-polarization 16QAM formats with conventional PDM-QPSK and PDM-8QAM formats by considering error correction coding. We particularly show that 128SP- 16QAM appear as a competitive alternative to PDM-8QAM for spectrally efficient (>4 b/s/Hz) optical transmission systems using forward error-correction coding.© 2012 OSA.
