Abstract

In optical phase conjugation (OPC) systems, the third-order dispersion (TOD) of optical fibers and the nonlinear resonance at well-defined signal sideband frequencies called sideband instability (SI) mainly limit the transmission performance. We propose, for the first time, a scheme for simultaneous suppression of both TOD and SI in OPC systems using a periodic higher order dispersion-managed link consisting of standard single-mode fibers (SMFs) and reverse dispersion fibers (RDFs). Computer simulation results demonstrate the possibility of 200-Gb/s data transmission over 10 000 km in the higher order dispersion-managed OPC system, where the dispersion map is optimized by our system design strategies.
