Title
(EN) Constant envelope path-dependent phase modulation
Abstract
(EN)

Optical transmitters configured to modulate optical signals with a path-dependent phase modulation scheme. In certain examples, an optical transmitter includes an optical source that emits a carrier waveform, a modulator configured to modulate the carrier waveform according to a path-dependent phase modulation scheme to produce a modulated optical signal, a mapping module configured to map a data payload to the path-dependent phase modulation scheme, each symbol in the path-dependent phase modulation scheme including a concatenation of at least one location bit and a path bit, the at least one location bit identifying an amount of a phase transition in the modulated optical signal and the path bit identifying a direction of the phase transition, and a pulse-shaping filter configured to control the modulator, based on an output from the mapping module, to impose the path-dependent phase modulation scheme on the carrier waveform to generate the modulated optical signal.
