Abstract

The probability density of nonlinear phase noise, often called the Gordon–Mollenauer effect, is derived analytically. The nonlinear phase noise can be accurately modeled as the summation of a Gaussian random variable and a noncentral chi-square random variable with two degrees of freedom. Using the received intensity to correct for the phase noise, the residual nonlinear phase noise can be modeled as the summation of a Gaussian random variable and the difference of two noncentral chi-square random variables with two degrees of freedom. The residual nonlinear phase noise can be approximated by Gaussian distribution better than the nonlinear phase noise without correction.
