Paper Abstract

Dispersion power penalties arising from chromatic dispersion and mode partition noise are discussed. Using chromatic dispersion measurements made on fifty 30 km spans in a MCI fiber-optic system, maximum repeater spacings for a hypothetical 565 Mb/s system (using conventional fibers and lasers at 1300 nm) and a 1.6 Gb/s system (using conventional fibers and DFB lasers at 1550 nm) are calculated. For the DFB laser, power penalties due to chirping, existence of a side mode, and mode partition noise are calculated.
