Abstract

The guidelines for the design of modern optical communication systems were reviewed considering the penalties and limitations posed by nonlinear effects in optical fibers. The nonlinear properties of the fiber were found to impact the optical signals in various ways. This consisted of intra-channel and inter-channel impairments via mechanisms including self phase modulation, four-wave mixing, stimulated Raman scattering and cross-phase modulation. The relative importance of different mechanisms was determined by combining all system parameters and was found to be dependent on the choices made during system design.
