Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical pulses with sub-picosecond width will exhibit the phenomena of timing jitter and pulse decay induced by the third-order dispersion and Raman self-frequency shift. The optical phase conjugation is proposed to compensate for the high-order dispersion and high-order nonlinear effect. However, the spectral phase conjugation can’t eliminate the time delay induced by Raman self-frequency shift and the temporal phase conjugation can’t avoid the pulse splitting into two pieces induced by the third order dispersion. Thus, the schemes of the combination of the spectral and temporal phase conjugation are supposed to use for recovering the distorted pulse and reducing the time delay induced by the third-order dispersion and Raman self-frequency shift. There exist the optimized schemes to deploy the relative position between the spectral phase conjugator and the temporal phase conjugator to obtain the optimization transmission qualities with the minimum penalty for timing jitter and pulse distortion. In addition, the spectral phase conjugator and temporal phase conjugator should be settled down after the midway and before the midway, respectively, in order to obtain the residual third-order dispersion to enhance the frequency red-shift trend of two polarization components after the temporal phase conjugator for reducing the time delay.
