Paper Abstract

In this paper, the concept of the nonlinear diffusion bandwidth of a fiber is introduced. This simple criterion enables the characterization of nonlinear impairments in single-span transmission systems. Furthermore it is shown how to extend this criterion to multi-span dispersion-managed transmission systems. This enables to easily predict the performance of a given modulation format over various transmission lines with different fiber chromatic dispersion and dispersion maps.
