Schemes for Compensation of Chromatic Dispersion in Combined HDWDM Systems
The authors seek best ways to realize chromatic dispersion (CD) compen-sation schemes for differently modulated optical signals in high-speed mixed data rate HDWDM systems. The research is based on OptSim 5.1. simulation software, which numerically solves nonlinear Schrödinger equation using the split-step Fourier method. It is shown that the CD compensation scheme is crucial for the performance evaluation in combined HDWM transmission channels. Therefore, a scheme of the type is proposed that is suited best for a very complicated combined fiber optical transmission system. It is also found that asymmetrical CD compensation schemes in pre- and post-compensation modules are the most efficient, allowing the best BER in a channel to be achieved.
