Abstract

We report the results of 5 channels, 40 Gb/s/channel WDM system with significant launch power in the presence of fiber nonlinearities, by propagating intensity modulated CSRZ pulse train through standard SMF. These results show that traditional approach of complete dispersion compensation using DCF just after each SMF span is not necessarily the optimum choice for better system performance. Rather, the performance of optical links highly depends on the percent of dispersion compensation at different location of DCFs. These investigations demonstrate that the performance of practical WDM systems can be enhanced significantly by using optimum dispersion map for WDM communication systems.
