We numerically evaluate Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of four- and eight-dimensional modulation formats with Bit-Interleaved Coded Modulation Iterative Detection (BICM-ID) compared with Gray mapped and natural binary mapped two-dimensional formats for high-speed optical communication systems. The BICM-ID, which is composed of a demodulator and a decoder, effectively improves power efficiency of the multi-dimensional formats taking into account receiver sensitivity and transmission capacity per symbol. Further, we quantitatively verify that the BER performances significantly depend on a priori/extrinsic mutual information exchange between a demodulator and a decoder, which is illustrated by Extrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) chart.
