Paper Abstract

Using the split-step Fourier method, the nonlinear effects and higher-order dispersion in optical fiber are studied and numerically analyzed. Based on the analysis, the theoretical model of higher-order dispersion compensation with phased modulator is presented, with emphasis on the third-order dispersion. According to the theoretical model, simulation models based on VPItransmission is designed. Finally, experimental schemes are designed, and experiment is finished: 200-fs pulses propagate through a 47-km fiber link, including a 39.8-km SMF (single-mode fiber) and a 6.71-km DCF (dispersion-compensation fiber). In that experiment, the oscillating tails are completely suppressed and the third-order dispersion is successfully compensated with the phase modulator. Moreover, the parameters of modulator are optimized with VPItransmission Modeling.
