We experimentally investigate the nonlinear tolerance of 21.4-Gbit/s POLMUX-RZ-OOK and POLMUX-RZ-DPSK modulation formats over an 800-km straight-line, for different numbers of co-propagating channels and channel spacing. We show that depolarization penalties are significantly reduced when POLMUX-RZ-DPSK is used, possibly making it a suitable modulation format for next-generation robust transmission systems.
