11.5 bits/s/Hz PM-256QAM Comb-Based Superchannel Transmission by Combining Optical and Digital Pilots
Paper in proceedings, 2018

We demonstrate 44 Tb/s transmission using three 50x24 Gbaud PM-256QAM comb-based superchannels. Each superchannel combines a single optical pilot tone with individual digital pilot symbols to minimize the total overhead, enabling record spectral-efficiency over the full C-band.
