ABSTRACT Intrachannel four-wave mixing (IFWM) in highly dispersed differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) transmission systems is studied with a simple analytical model and numerical simulation. It is found that the IFWM effect in DPSK systems is smaller and less dependent on the bit pattern than in on-off-keying systems with the same average power. The reduced pulse energy in DPSK and correlation between the nonlinear phase shifts of two adjacent pulses contribute to the robustness of DPSK versus IFWM. (C) 2003 Optical Society of America.

    ABSTRACT: Optical fiber transport networks have been evolving rapidly to meet the demands of today's telecommunications such as unprecedented transmission capacity and reach. Fiber nonlinearity becomes an important issue as the transmission capacity and reach increase, and appropriate management of fiber nonlinearity is necessary. We review the progresses on some novel techniques for managing fiber nonlinearity in modern optical transmission systems. Advanced optical modulation techniques that allow optical signals to have high tolerance to both inter-channel and intra-channel nonlinear effects will be discussed. In particular, differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) and its impact in high-speed dense wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) systems will be described. Novel dispersion management methods that suppress nonlinear effects will also be reviewed, particularly in the context of scalable and transparent optical transport networks having mixed 10 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s DWDM channels and optical add/drop multipliers (OADM). Electronic techniques that compensate for fiber nonlinearity at the transmitter side and the receiver side will be briefly discussed.

    ABSTRACT: We present fiber-nonlinearity-tolerant transmission of polarization-division multiplexed binary phase-shift keying (PDM-BPSK) through a nonlinear noise squeezing (NLNS) effect that is achieved by optimized digital electronic dispersion precompensation. With the improved nonlinear tolerance, a 406.6-Gb/s superchannel consisting of eight 37.5-GHz-spaced 32-Gbaud Nyquist-filtered PDM-BPSK signals is transmitted over a 12800-km (160 × 80-km) EDFA-only amplified dispersion-unmanaged nonzero-dispersion-shifted fiber link. We establish a connection between the beneficial NLNS effect and the recently reported phase-conjugated twin wave (PCTW) concept and further generalize the PCTW concept to vector twin waves that are traveling through a fiber link along orthogonal dimensions such as time and space. Moreover, we apply the PCTW concept to wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) superchannel transmission by treating the entire WDM superchannel as a twin wave to further mitigate interchannel nonlinear effects. Through numerical simulations, we show that the generalized PCTW technique can effectively mitigate interchannel nonlinear impairments, in addition to mitigating intrachannel nonlinear impairments.
