We demonstrate a 10 Gsymbol/s, 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) 160 km coherent transmission with an injection locking technique. Our newly developed, pilot-assisted adaptive equalizer has greatly improved the precision of waveform distortion compensation, and this has enabled us to increase the symbol rate to 10 Gsymbol/s in a 1024 QAM transmission. Thus, we could realize a 200 Gbit/s, 1024 QAM transmission over 160 km with a potential spectral efficiency of 12.6 bit/s/Hz.
