An improved feed-forward carrier phase recovery method is proposed for coherent receivers using M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation-based modulation formats. It is shown that by introducing multiple cascaded feed-forward carrier recovery stages, the required compute power can be significantly reduced compared to the prior art using the single-stage-based blind phase search method.
