On the Performance Metric and Design of Non-Uniformly Shaped Constellation

Asymmetric information is shown to be more accurate in characterizing the performance of quadrant folding shaped (QFS) M-QAM. The performance difference of QFS M-QAM schemes strongly depends on the FEC coding rate, and the optimum FEC coding rate is found to be around ?0.8, which is independent of QFS M-QAM and the designed rates.

Flex-Rate Transmission using Hybrid Probabilistic and Geometric Shaped 32QAM

A novel algorithm to design geometric shaped 32QAM to work with probabilistic shaping is proposed to approach the Shannon limit within ~0.2 dB in SNR. The experimental results show ~0.2 dB SNR advantage over 64Gbaud PAS-64QAM, and flex-rate transmission demonstrates > 500 km reach improvement over 32QAM.

Universal Hybrid Probabilistic-geometric Shaping Based on Two-dimensional Distribution Matchers

We propose universal distribution matchers applicable to any two-dimensional signal constellation. We experimentally demonstrate that the performance of 32-ary QAM, based on hybrid probabilistic-geometric shaping, is superior to probabilistically shaped 32QAM and regular 32QAM.
