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: We calculate the magnitude of cross phase modulation (XPM) induced by classical channels, and analyze its impact on quantum secure key rate. The results show that the XPM induced by classical signals is small and its impact on the quantum key distribution can be neglected.

    ABSTRACT: Higher order $M$ -ary phase shift keying (MPSK) and differential phase shift keying (MDPSK) ( $M\ge 4$ ) are used in optical communications for increased spectral efficiency. This paper proposes a unified and systematic approach to predicting the error probability of MPSK with phase reference error (PRE) and MDPSK with residual phase noise (RPN) in additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. It is shown that AWGN leads to an equivalent additive observation phase noise (AOPN), whose probability density function (pdf) conditioned on knowing the received signal magnitude is Tikhonov. For high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the Tikhonov pdf can be accurately approximated by a Gaussian pdf. This AOPN can be combined with the PRE/RPN, and the distribution of the combined phase noise (AOPN + PRE/RPN) facilitates the computation of the probability of the received signal phasor falling in any sector in the complex plane. It thus enables us to express the symbol error probability of MPSK/MDPSK with phase noise as one Gaussian $Q$ -function. Moreover, it facilitates the analysis of bit error probability (BEP) with Gray code mapping for MPSK/MDPSK. All the new BEP expressions obtained are linear combinations of single Gaussian $Q$ -functions, and do not involve the product of Gaussian $Q$ -functions. It is shown that our Gaussian AOPN $+$ PRE/RPN model provides a simpler and quicker way to accurately estimate the error performance as a function of the phase error variance. Our unified approach is increasingly more accurate as $M$ increases.

    ABSTRACT: Several approximate non-linear fiber propagation models have been proposed over the years. Recent re-consideration and extension of earlier modeling efforts has led to the formalization of the so-called Gaussian-noise (GN) model. The evidence collected so far hints at the GN-model as being a relatively simple and, at the same time, sufficiently reliable tool for performance prediction of uncompensated coherent systems, characterized by a favorable accuracy versus complexity trade-off. This paper tries to gather the recent results regarding the GN-model definition, understanding, relations versus other models, validation, limitations, closed form solutions, approximations and, in general, its applications and implications in link analysis and optimization, also within a network environment.
