High spectral efficiency superchannel transmission using a soliton microcomb
Paper in proceedings, 2019

We demonstrate transmission of a 52 channel superchannel using an optimized 22.1 GHz-spaced soliton microcomb. Enabling a record spectral efficiency of >10 bits/s/Hz after 80 km and 6.1 bits/s/Hz after 3000 km using a microcomb. Our results demonstrate that chip-scale combs can achieve performance directly comparable to bulk-optic frequency combs.
