30-GBaud DP 16-QAM transmission in the E-band enabled by bismuth-doped fiber amplifiers


We report the transmission of five 30-GBaud dual polarization 16-QAM signals over 160 km of standard single-mode fiber in the E-band (1410–1460 nm). The transmission line consists of two 80-km spans and three independent bismuth -doped fiber amplifiers. The developed amplifiers feature a maximum gain of 27.3 dB, 33.8 dB, and 28.3 dB with a minimum noise figure of 4.8 dB, 4.7 dB, and 5.3 dB, respectively. The maximum signal Q2 factor penalty is 4.5 dB, and the overall performance of the system is above the pre-forward-error-correction (FEC) threshold for a 10−15 post-FEC bit error rate. To the best of our knowledge, this is the record experimentally demonstrated transmission length for a coherent detection signal in the E-band
