    We investigate the joint implementation of back-propagation and RF-pilot tone for fiber nonlinear compensation in POLMUX-16QAM and show that the nonlinear tolerance is drastically improved when compared to OFDM system

    The performance of single carrier and OFDM is compared when nonlinear compensation at the DSP receiver is employed. We show that the joint use of RF-pilot and back-propagation adds further improvement to OFDM performance.
