Optical duobinary signals have been applied to dense wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems with high-spectral efficiency to fully utilize a limited gain bandwidth of about 35 nm (4.4 THz) for an erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA). These signals are one type of partial response signals and have narrower bandwidth than conventional intensity modulation (IM) signals. Thus, the use of these signals should make possible to attain ultradense WDM systems. In this paper, characteristics of optical duobinary and IM signals in ultradense WDM systems are compared through experimental evaluations at 20 Gb/s. High-spectral efficiency of 0.6 b/s/Hz was reached in this demonstration
