An inverse-RZ modulation scheme for dense WDM systems is proposed. Inverse-RZ signals have tolerances to chromatic dispersion and optical bandwidth limitation. The strongly pre-filtered inverse-RZ signals can be adapted to ultra-dense WDM systems, in which the spectral efficiencies are over 1.0 b/s/Hz. We have confirmed the error-free transmission of pre-filtered and co-polarized 40-Gb/s inverse-RZ signals where the channel intervals were 37.5 GHz.
