Paper Abstract

The transmission of high-bandwidth data over optical fiber is impaired by a variety of linear and nonlinear effects due to the inherent properties of the transmission medium. In this tutorial, we will explain how these physical effects affect the data transmission. We will also discuss the interdependence between these effects and give some rules of thumb to estimate their relative impact.
