Paper Abstract

The transmission properties of Hermite-Gaussian optical pulses in fiber are studied. A theoretical solution is obtained by the momentum method, and the result is compared with a numerical simulation. Moreover, short Hermite-Gaussian optical pulse transmission over 1440 km in a dense dispersion-managed link is investigated on a numerical simulation basis. It is demonstrated that the pulse can propagate stably in zero, positive, and negative net dispersion compensation systems. In our simulation, both the second dispersion and the third-order dispersion are compensated. It is found that a Hermite-Gaussian optical pulse can transmit stably with reasonably lower power.
