Performance Fluctuations due to Polarization Effects and Nonlinearity in a Terrestrial WDM System

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We show that, in a typical terrestrial WDM system, the intra-channel nonlinearity-induced Q fluctuation is comparable to that due to PDL alone, and the inter-channel nonlinearity dominates Q fluctuations at narrow channel spacings.
