Coherent optical transmission systems, in which the amplitude, frequency, and phase of the coherent optical carrier are modulated and then demodulated through a homodyne or heterodyne scheme, may be useful for reducing received optical power in large capacity transmission systems.1 Phase modulation (PM) is expected to be the most effective mode of modulation for them.
