A novel decision-aided maximum likelihood (DA ML) technique is proposed to estimate the carrier phase in coherent optical phase-shiftkeying system. The DA ML scheme is a totally linear computational algorithm which is feasible for on-line processing in the real systems. The simulation results show that the DA ML receiver can outperform the conventional Mth power scheme, especially when the nonlinear phase noise is dominant.
