Importance of self-phase modulation for amplitude- and phase-modulated coherent optical transmission systems: a comparison

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We demonstrate that the amount of self-phase modulation in a coherent optical transmission system grows more slowly for a phase-modulated than for an amplitude-modulated signal. Signal degradation is discussed in terms of variations in the spectral contents of the amplitude and phase modulations, and explicit analytical expressions are given for the linear modulation indices of phase and amplitude of phase-shift keying coherent transmission systems.
