Improvement of Nonlinear Tolerance in 40 Gbit/s Transmission by Phase Modulation at 10 GHz

Abstract

We propose to suppress intra-channel four-wave-mixing (IFWM) in 40 Gbit/s optical transmission by applying a phase modulation at 10 GHz. Both numerical simulations and experiments show that the penalty induced by IFWM is significantly reduced
