We compare through Monte Carlo simulations the performance of polarization-division multiplexed quadrature phase-shift keying (PDM-QPSK)/on-off keying (OOK) and differential QPSK (DQPSK)/OOK hybrid systems, taking into account nonlinear phase noise. DQPSK turns out to be better with optimal dispersion-management, while PDM-QPSK proves to be a good candidate for bit rates higher than 40 Gb/s.
