Detection of a 1Tb/s superchannel with a single coherent receiver



We demonstrate detection of a superchannel with net bit rate in excess of 1 Tb/s with a single coherent receiver. Novel, pilot-aided equalization and carrier recovery algorithms enable detection of an 11 x 10 GBd DP-64QAM Nyquist superchannel (1.32 Tb/s gross bit rate).
