Abstract

Sinusoidally modulated optical signal transmission is experimentally investigated over a 30 km standard single-mode fiber using a range of optical input powers. Experiments and computer simulations showed that fiber-induced self-phase modulation generates a chirp on the signal with an effect opposite to that induced by chromatic dispersion. Calculations were performed to investigate the distortions caused by simultaneous dispersion and non-linearity using a range of fiber parameters. Soliton propagation of the microwave/millimeter wave modulated signal is reported at elevated intensities in lossless and loss compensated cases.
