Fiber non-linear effects in multiple-wavelengths optical CDMA systems


Kharazi, Seyed Mohammad Saleh Seyedzadeh and Sahbudin, Ratna Kalos Zakiah and Abas, Ahmad Fauzi and Ahmad Anas, Siti Barirah (2013) Fiber non-linear effects in multiple-wavelengths optical CDMA systems. IETE Technical Review, 30 (2). pp. 149-156. ISSN 0256-4602; ESSN: 0974-5971


Multi-wavelength Optical Code Division Multiple Access (OCDMA) systems suffer from fiber impairments including non-linear effects (NLE), especially when the number of wavelengths and input power level increase. In this paper, a review of NLE, including self-phase modulation, cross-phase modulation, four wave mixing (FWM), stimulated Brillouin scattering and stimulated Raman scattering on the system performance of OCDMA systems is presented. As some of the non-linearities may have correlated effects on the performance of the system, the relations between these effects are also investigated. Bit error rate results reveal that the most important unwanted effect was caused by FWM.
