We propose the Stokes vector direct detection (SV-DD) scheme which simultaneously achieves receiver phase diversity and the cancellation of photodetection nonlinearity. An 80 Gb / s single-polarization modulated SV-DD signal is successfully received after 160 km SSMF transmission with 11.64 bit / s /Hz electrical spectrum efficiency.
