Abstract

We study the limitations and their origins in the nonlinear effects mitigation in fiber-optic communication systems. The carrier frequencies uncertainty and their stochastic variations are identified as the major impeding factor for successful inter-channel nonlinear impairments management. Furthermore, the results clearly point out to the significant benefits of employing fully frequency referenced carriers in transmission, with frequency combs representing an immediately available solution. Finally, frequency referenced transmitters and/or receivers are shown as critical for availing longer reach at high spectral efficiencies in transmission.
