Abstract

The effect of nonlinear phase noise in dispersion-managed optical transmission systems is studied. The variance of the nonlinear phase noise in systems based on differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) in the presence of dispersion is examined analytically, and a semianalytical expression to calculate the error probability including intrachannel four-wave mixing, linear phase noise, and nonlinear phase noise for systems based on DPSK is derived. In addition, for the on–off keying (OOK) format, the formula for the error probability including amplified spontaneous emission noise and intrachannel nonlinear effects has been given. On the basis of the semianalytical expressions, we have compared the error probability of systems based on DPSK and OOK, and the results show that, to reach a given bit error rate of 10 9 for a specific long-haul system, the difference between the signal-to-noise ratio required by the DPSK format and that required by the OOK format is around 6   dB for the launch power of 0 dBm, and the difference becomes larger as the launch power increases.
