Abstract

We present a new simple analysis-including the effect of spontaneous emission-of the (dynamic) influence of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) on the detected receiver eye diagram. It applies in principle for general types of modulation formats such as the digital formats of amplitude shift keying (ASK), frequency shift keying (FSK), and phase shift keying (PSK). The analysis is formulated for a determination of the signal power depletion and intersymbol interference (ISI) caused by the combined effect of fiber dispersion, fiber attenuation and nonlinear fiber effects such as the effect of self-phase modulation (SPM) and SBS. The analysis allows a quantification of the dithering influence on the SBS threshold. Representative numerical examples are presented for two single-channel ON</emph>-OFF</emph> modulated 10-Gb/s systems utilizing Franz-Keldysh and Mach-Zehnder-type modulators.
