We demonstrate unrepeated optical transmission of 20-Gb/s quadrature phase-shift-keying (QPSK) signals over a 200-km-long standard single-mode fiber (SMF) without using any optical dispersion compensator. By employing optical homodyne detection, which can restore the entire information of the complex amplitude of the transmitted signal, group-velocity dispersion (GVD) of the SMF can be compensated electrically by a linear equalizer at the receiver. From off-line bit-error-rate measurements, we find that a simple transversal filter implemented in digital signal processing circuits after homodyne detection can effectively cancel the fiber GVD of up to 4000 ps/nm, enabling successful 20-Gb/s QPSK transmission.
