Abstract

The effect of intensity distortion induced by cross-phase modulation in dispersive optical fibers is studied. It is shown that, in most configurations in which distortions that are due to cross-phase modulation can become significant to optical communications, the effect of cross-phase modulation can be described with excellent accuracy by simple analytical expressions. The presented analysis also suggests that intensity distortions owing to cross-phase modulation can be efficiently reduced by linear dispersion compensation.
