The recent decade has witnessed the evolution and enormous demand of the high-capacity data center interconnect (DCI), in such application scenarios spectral efficiency, optical field recovery and cost-effectiveness are highly desirable. Compared to coherent detection, direct detection does not require local oscillators, resulting in a simpler transceiver structure and thus a lower-cost solution for DCIs. To overcome chromatic dispersion induced power fading, field recovery enabled by direct detection has drawn extensive research interests. To date, various proposed direct detection schemes concentrate mainly on single sideband (SSB) modulation. Compared to double sideband (DSB) modulation, ..
