Polarization QAM Modulation (POL-QAM) for Coherent Detection Schemes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


A new polarization constellation diagram leads to polarization QAM modulation formats. At 28Gbaud (112Gb/s) POL-QAM 6-4 with six QPSK modulated states-of-polarization enables 1.7-dB higher sensitivity than PDM-QPSK by applying coded-modulation with an inner RS(511,455) FEC.
