Lightwave system performance limits due to fiber nonlinearities

High transmitter power in optical communication systems causes fibers to depart from simple linear behavior. Various optical nonlinearities can lead to undesirable frequency conversion and signal loss or distortion.1 We discuss two nonlinear processes which can ultimately limit transmitter powers. The first, carrier-induced phase noise, affects both single-wavelength and wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) angle-modulated systems. The second nonlinear process, stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), affects both angle-modulated and amplitude-modulated WDM systems.
