Paper Abstract

A novel method to generate carrier-suppressed return-to-zero (CSRZ) pulses by using a sampled fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is proposed, and the transmission characteristics of the CSRZ pulses are simulated and discussed. This CSRZ pulse has a duty cycle of 50%, narrower than conventional CSRZ pulse, which is due to the filtering and shaping of FBG, and leads to increase of nonlinearity and dispersion tolerance in high-speed transmission systems. Through proper design of FBG and adoption of short pulse source, this technique provides a promising way to modify the pulse shape and consequently improve system performance.
