The recent decade has witnessed the rapid growth of data traffic driven by various bandwidth-rich applications. Accordingly, both short-reach and long-haul fiber based optical networks are in great demand. For the long-haul transports, coherent detection is dominant due to its superior performance. Although the hardware structure of coherent systems possesses large footprint and the corresponding DSP algorithms are complicated, the cost is amortised by the high capacity and long transmission distance. While for short- to medium-reach transports such as intra- and inter- data center connections and metropolitan networks, cost is one primary concern. As such, direct detection has attracted ext..
