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: We demonstrate a novel 160-Gb/s modulation format that employs phase inversion of every four consecutive bits in a group. This format enables a very simplified clock recovery by optical filtering of 40-GHz spaced tones. The recovered clock shows a low timing jitter of 270 fs. In addition, we investigate its enhanced nonlinear transmission property by comparing it with carrier-suppressed return-to-zero (CSRZ) and pairwise-alternating-phase CSRZ signals through analytical studies and numerical simulations. We experimentally verify its good performance relative to CSRZ through a data transmission over a 38-km single-mode fiber.

    ABSTRACT: Self-phase-modulation-induced nonlinear phase noise is reduced with the increase of fiber dispersion but intrachannel four-wave mixing (IFWM) is increased with dispersion. Both degrading differential phase-shift keying signals, the standard deviation of nonlinear phase-noise-induced differential phase is about three times that from IFWM even in highly dispersive transmission systems.

    ABSTRACT: A semianalytical method evaluates the error probability of differential phase-shift keying signals with intrachannel four-wave mixing in a highly dispersive fiber link with strong pulse overlap. Depending on initial pulsewidth, the mean nonlinear phase shift of the system can be from 1 to 2 rad for signal-to-noise ratio penalty less than 1 dB. An approximated empirical formula, valid for penalty less than 2 dB, uses the variance of the differential phase of the ghost pulses to estimate the penalty.
