Numerical Study on Optical Solitons Transmission System with 40 Gbit/s in the Photonic Crystal Fiber


The 40 Gbit/s optical solitons transmission system in photonic crystal fiber was investigated by fast Fourier transform method, and the maximum transmission distance of system was calculated numerically. By the eye pattern of system, the transmission performances of system were studied. Results show that when polarization mode dispersion coefficient Dp is smaller than , the influence of the PMD on the transmission distance was neglectable. When the dispersion coefficient D is larger than 1.5 ps/km/nm, the transmission distance decreases rapidly. The positive or negative of three order group-velocity dispersion makes no differences on the system transmission.
