Multilevel Coding with Flexible Probabilistic Shaping for Rate-Adaptive and Low-Power Optical Communications
Paper in proceedings, 2020

A novel multilevel coded modulation scheme with probabilistic shaping is presented. It can reduce the power consumption up to 9 times compared with uniform signaling in the regime of typical hard-decision FEC thresholds.
