Experimental Investigation of a Four-Dimensional 256-ary Lattice-based Modulation Format
Paper in proceedings, 2015

A four-dimensional modulation format with 256 point from the D4-lattice (256-D4) is compared to PM-16QAM in experiments. 256-D4 is more sensitive at high OSNR but with a 21.3% overhead turbo product code, PM-16QAM outperforms 256-D4.
