Abstract

70-GHz-spaced 40 × 42.7 Gb/s prefiltered carrier-suppressed return-to-zero differential phase-shift keying (CSRZ-DPSK) signals have been transmitted over transpacific distances for the first time, using all-Raman repeaters with two pump-wavelengths, dispersion-managed fiber commercially available in volume, and an ETDM receiver. In this paper,first, in order to enhance the spectral efficiency, the impact of bandlimitation to a CSRZ-DPSK signal was experimentally investigated in comparison to a conventional CSRZ-on-off-keying (OOK) signal, and we found that the bandlimitation tolerance of CSRZ-DPSK signal was smaller than that of CSRZ-OOK signal in back-to-back condition. We also confirmed that the prefiltering CSRZ-DPSK signal with up to 65 GHz bandlimitation potentially had better transmission performance than the prefiltered CSRZ-OOK signal. In addition, we found that, although the nonlinear transmission penalty was increased by bandlimitation, this penalty for CSRZ-DPSK signal was smaller than that for CSRZ-OOK signal. Through this study, long-term stability of the transmission performance was also evaluated with low-speed signal polarization scrambling without using any polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensation.
