Paper Abstract

Transmission of intensity noise along linear single-mode fiber taking into account the first- and second-order fiber dispersion is investigated theoretically and numerically. Excellent agreement between our theoretical predictions and accurate numerical simulations of intensity noise spectra after single-mode fiber transmission is obtained for different laser bias currents and fiber dispersion parameters. Our theoretical and simulation results show that the intensity noise spectrum at the fiber output is not dependent on the second-order fiber dispersion, and therefore it is determined solely by the first-order fiber dispersion. Accordingly, second-order dispersion effects on the intensity noise spectrum are proved to be irrelevant even for very long broadband optical communication systems operating near zero-dispersion wavelength.
