Abstract

We propose a novel advanced orthogonal modulation format dark return-to-zero frequency shift keying/differential phase shift keying (DRZ-FSK/DPSK) and its realization scheme. The DRZ-FSK/DPSK is generated by the combination of a 40-Gb/s return-to-zero (RZ) signal and a DRZ signal which is converted from the RZ using a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) based on nonlinear cross polarization rotation (XPR) and then re-modulated by high-bit-rate DPSK at 40 Gb/s. The feasibility of the scheme is experimentally demonstrated. Bit error rate (BER) results of the total 80-Gb/s DRZ-FSK/DPSK orthogonal modulation signal with a subsequent 100-km single-mode fiber (SMF) transmission link show its potential for future high-speed long-haul optical communication.
