Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate linewidth-tolerant real-time 40 - Gbit s ( 10 - Gsymbol s ) 16-quadrature amplitude modulation. We achieved bit-error rates of < 10 9 using an external-cavity laser diode with a linewidth of 200 kHz and < 10 7 using a distributed-feedback laser diode with a linewidth of 30 MHz , thanks to the phase-noise canceling capability provided by self-homodyne detection using a pilot carrier. Pre-equalization based on digital signal processing was employed to suppress intersymbol interference caused by the limited-frequency bandwidth of electrical components.
