A theoretical assessment of the interferometric noise in the optical time division multiplexing (OTDM) transmission system is presented. The impact of such noise on the system performance were investigated in detail. The corresponding system requirements were also revealed by the calculation results. Recommendations on the use of prechirping to reduce the interferometric noise in the OTDM system are given.
