Abstract

Phase retrieval (PR) receivers can reconstruct the full electrical field of the signal using only intensity measurements without any optical carrier. In this Letter, we investigate the requirement of digital upsampling and receiver bandwidth of the PR receiver based on alternative projection employing a dispersive element. An iteration scheme averaging the interleaved upsampled symbols to maintain two samples per symbol for the estimated complex-valued signal is proposed and experimentally demonstrated with fast algorithm convergence. The PR uses a modified Gerchberg–Saxton algorithm. Experimentally, we measure Nyquist-shaped 30-GBaud quadrature phase shift keying signals after 55-km single-mode fiber transmission using only 110 and 250 iterations to reach, respectively, the 20% and 7% forward-error correction threshold levels.
