Clock recovery (CR) from a 160-Gb/s data signal is demonstrated using a single unidirectional electroabsorption modulator in a cost-effective phase-locked loop configuration consisting entirely of commercially available components. The CR exhibits a root mean square time jitter of 205 fs, a holding range of 10 MHz, a wavelength-independent performance of 10 nm, and an input dynamic range of 10 dB. Demultiplexing experiments of transmitted 160-Gb/s data through installed fiber links over 275.4 km verified the excellent performance of the proposed CR. All 16 10-Gb/s channels were demultiplexed error-free.
