A hardware-efficient trellis-based algorithm is proposed for fiber nonlinearity mitigation in coherent systems, especially for high order modulations. Experimental results, in 200 Gb/s DP-16QAM co-propagated with 10-G channels, demonstrate significant performance improvement over other existing methods of comparable complexity.
