ABSTRACT The error probability is derived analytically for differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) signals contaminated by both self- and cross-phase modulation (SPM and XPM)-induced nonlinear phase noise. XPM-induced nonlinear phase noise is modeled as Gaussian distributed phase noise. When fiber dispersion is compensated perfectly in each fiber span, XPM-induced nonlinear phase is summed coherently span after span and is the dominant nonlinear phase noise for typical wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) DPSK systems. For systems without or with XPM-suppressed dispersion compensation, SPM-induced nonlinear phase noise is usually the dominant nonlinear phase noise. With longer walkoff length, for the same mean nonlinear phase shift, 10-Gb/s systems are more sensitive to XPM-induced nonlinear phase noise than 40-Gb/s systems.

    ABSTRACT: The distortion of coherent signals caused by nonlinear effects were studied experimentally using a real time DSP at 40 Gbps. It was shown that coherent signals were primarily degraded by SPM in the case of a 50 GHz ROADM grid. The XPM-induced penalty increased on reducing the channel spacing to 25 GHz.

    ABSTRACT: Fiber optic communication systems are limited by effects arising from chromatic dispersion and nonlinearities. In this paper, evaluations of nonlinear effects like SPM and XPM are made, in order to determine the limits imposed by these effects on the launched power. These evaluations are done by means of simulation scenarios, where single channel 10Gb/s DPSK optical modulation with direct detection is employed over 100 km of SMF. In addition, the benefits of SPM are shown by applying this effect in an all-optical regeneration scheme, used to compensate residual dispersion over 500 km of SMF.

    ABSTRACT: This work presents a model of an exact transfer function and its associated probability structure for intensity noise propagation through an operationally-passive fiber optic demodulation scheme used with fiber Bragg grating sensor systems. This new model is generalized to any input noise probability structure and includes the possibility of full or partial correlation among the demodulation input channels. For the specific case of Gaussian-distributed intensity noise, this work shows that the demodulators nonlinear transfer function induces phase-dependent output bias output variance attenuation or amplification. Experimental data are provided to validate the model.
