NONLINEAR EFFECTS IN OPTICAL FIBERS
John A. Buck Georgia Institute of Technology School of Electrical and Computer Engineering Atlanta, Georgia Fiber nonlinearities are important in optical communications, both as useful attributes and as characteristics to be avoided. They must be considered when designing long-range high-data-rate systems that involve high optical power levels and in which signals at multiple wavelengths are transmitted. The consequences of nonlinear transmission can include (1) the generation of additional signal bandwidth within a given channel, (2) modifications of the phase and shape of pulses, (3) the generation…
