Paper Abstract

In wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transmission systems, it is a problem that the transmission characteristics are degraded due to the fiber nonlinear effects. These nonlinear effects are caused by the pulse collision due to the group velocity difference between different channels. In this paper, a novel WDM transmission system with the dispersion slope management is proposed. The system manages not only dispersion but also dispersion slope and group velocity differences to suppress the third order dispersion and nonlinear effects. Our numerical results shows that the proposed system can suppress both of them and has good characteristics in long haul transmission.
