Paper Abstract

The performance of optical telecommunication system is mainly limited by optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR) at the receiver, fiber dispersion and nonlinearities. The limiting factors of optical communication systems that employ pluggable XFPs are investigated experimentally by characterizing and correlating the information regarding pulses evolution of 10Gbps signals in optical fiber under the influence of dispersion and different nonlinear effects.
