We experimentally demonstrate the improved nonlinear transmission performance of a 100-Gb/s channel using modified phase-conjugated twin waves in a 1250-km legacy dispersion-managed SSMF link and 50-GHz-spaced co-propagating 10-Gb/s OOK channels, achieving 0.7dB improved performance over a common 100-Gb/s DP-QPSK channel.
