Abstract

It is proposed and demonstrated that two fiber spans in a scaled translational symmetry could cancel out their intra-channel nonlinear effects to a large extent without using optical phase conjugation. Significant reduction of intra-channel nonlinear effects may be achieved in a long-distance transmission line consisting of multiple pairs of translationally symmetric spans. The results have been derived analytically from the nonlinear Schrödinger equation and verified by numerical simulations using commercial software.
