Abstract

We analyze intrachannel nonlinear effects in high-bit-rate transmission systems based on short optical pulses that are dispersion compensated. We perform an analytical study of a generic example with two pulses, in which case the nonlinearity shifts the pulses in time and results in the generation of leading and trailing pulse echoes. We show that in all the relevant range of parameters, the magnitude of the nonlinear impairments reduces monotonically with the reduction of pulse width and with the increase of the dispersion coefficient.
